Abstract

Interior bearingless permanent magnet synchronous motors (IBPMSMs) are a new type of machines having two sets of windings in the stator, offering no lubrication and no mechanical friction, high efficiency, robust rotor construction, hybrid torque production nature and flux-weakening capability. In this paper, the suspension force modeling and the static electromagnetic characteristics of an IBPMSM are studied. The suspension force model of the IBPMSM is established and investigated based on the Maxwell tensor method. And then the static electromagnetic characteristics, including permanent magnet (PM) flux linkage, EMF, inductances, electromagnetic torque and suspension force, are discussed with the finite element analysis (FEA) method. The electromagnetic characteristics of the IBPMSM are very helpful for the design and optimization of the motor. The effectiveness of the proposed suspension force mathematical model is verified by comparing the theoretical results with FEA-based predictions. The work in this paper lays an important foundation for the optimization design and control strategies of the IBPMSM.
