Rotating Electrical Machines

  • Slobodan N. Vukosavic
Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)


This chapter provides basic information on cylindrical machine. Typical machine windings are introduced and explained, along with the basic forms of magnetic circuits with slots and teeth. This chapter introduces common notation, symbols, and conventions in representing the windings, their magnetic exes, their flux, and magnetomotive force. Typical losses and power balance charts are explained and presented for cylindrical motors and generators. Calculation of the magnetic field energy in the air gap of cylindrical machines is given at the end of this chapter, along with considerations regarding the torque per volume ratio.
