Abstract [en]

The increased demand for electricity, environmental problems related to mining of rare earth metals and to usage of fossil fuels, national security issues, and monopolization of the rare earth metals market forcing society to explore alternative options for conventional rare earth permanent magnets. Generally, the relationship between magnetic flux density and the magnetic field of permanent magnets has a nonlinear shape, but the operating region of conventional permanent magnets is linear. There is no convenient model of permanent magnets in existing commercial finite element method software that models partial demagnetization and remagnetization of nonlinear permanent magnets correctly. This thesis presents a model that is able to model an electrical machine with nonlinear permanent magnets and does not require a large computational power. A gradual improvement of the model resulted in four versions of it. It started with a simple linear model and ended with a model that is able to simulate partial demagnetization and remagnetization of the magnet and includes all four quadrants of the BH loop. Also, the last version limits the maximum magnetization depending on the angle of normalized magnetization. The magnetic characteristics of Alnico 8 LNGT40 and Alnico 9 LNGT72 magnets were measured in a vibrating sample magnetometer in order to obtain the material data required for this research work. A mathematical model of the MH loops of Alnico 8 LNGT40 in different directions was developed. The models of a synchronous permanent magnet generator with a spoke type topology with Alnico 5, 8 and 9 magnets were tested under normal and three phase short circuit conditions. The results were compared and discussed. It is found Alnico 5 is more sensitive to short circuit than Alnico 8 and 9. Electric steel clamps holding the permanent magnets and airgap above the magnets protect them from demagnetization.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, hard magnetic materials for future use in electrical machines are discussed. Commercialized permanent magnets used today are presented and new magnets are reviewed shortly. Specifically, the magnetic MnAl compound is investigated as a potential material for future generator designs. Experimental results of synthesized MnAl, carbon-doped MnAl and calculated values for MnAl are compared regarding their energy products. The results show that the experimental energy products are far from the theoretically calculated values with ideal conditions due to microstructure-related reasons. The performance of MnAl in a future permanent magnet (PM) generator is investigated with COMSOL, assuming ideal conditions. Simplifications, such as using an ideal hysteresis loop based on measured and calculated saturation magnetization values were done for the COMSOL simulation. The results are compared to those for a ferrite magnet and an NdFeB magnet. For an ideal MnAl hysteresis loop, it would be possible to replace ferrite with MnAl, with a reduced weight compared to ferrite. In conclusion, future work for simulations with assumptions and results closer to reality is suggested.

Abstract [en]

In this paper simulation results of a spoke-type synchronous generator for a wind turbine with three different grades of Alnico magnets were presented. COMSOL Multiphysics 5.4 finite element analysis (FEA) based software was used. The proposed model was used for simulation of a synchronous generator with non-linear Alnico magnets with recoil-lines with some approximations and can be used for modelling electrical machines with other non-linear permanent magnets. The geometry of the machines was kept fixed for all scenarios. The model takes into account the irreversible loss of magnetization of non-linear permanent magnets due to the magnetic field from the stator winding during normal operation and short circuit. Modelling results show that Alnico 5 (ArKomax800) magnets have the lowest output power, but they are the least sensitive to change of the load. The generator with Alnico 8 permanent magnets have the highest output power, is good at handling the nominal load but the most sensitive to short circuits. Alnico 9 magnets could be an option if the risk for short circuits is accounted for.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents the measurement results of the BH/MH curves of the Alnico 8 (LNGT40) with recoil loops and a mathematical model for the calculation of the average magnetic flux density in a cubic permanent magnet. The measurements were performed with a Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM). The magnet samples have a cubic shape with 3 mm sides. BH curves in preferred (easy) and transverse directions and recoil loops were measured and compared to Alnico 9 (LNGT72) as well as to the data from the supplier. The load line of the cubic magnet in 0 A/m applied magnetic field was found. A mathematical model was developed which can approximate the MH a curve for an applied field with an arbitrarily chosen angle between the field and easy axis, given MH a curves for 0o and 90o. Also, a simplified general model of a cubic permanent magnet in the air and calculation results of stored energy and hysteresis losses were presented.

2023 (Engelska)Ingår i: IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, ISSN 0018-9464, E-ISSN 1941-0069, Vol. 59, nr 9, artikel-id 7401308Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat) Published
Abstract [en]

In this article, a method of dynamic modeling of nonlinear permanent magnets (PMs) with recoil lines in 2-D finite element analysis (FEA) software was presented. COMSOL Multiphysics 6.0 FEA software was used in this study. The method is implemented through the variable utilities. The simulation results of a spoke-type synchronous generator for a wind turbine with anisotropic aluminum-nickel-cobalt (Alnico) 5, 8B, and 9 grades were used to exemplify the model and compared. The proposed methodology can be used for the simulation of nonlinear PMs with recoil lines and includes reversible and irreversible losses of magnetization of nonlinear PMs. The effect of the magnetic field from the stator winding on nonlinear PMs during normal operation and short circuits was studied. The modeling results were compared to the model without any demagnetization and a previous study with recoil lines and averaged minimum magnetic flux points. The no-load (NL) voltages were compared before and after a demagnetization. The dynamic model showed considerable demagnetization of Alnico magnets during normal operational and three-phase short circuits. Alnico 5 and 9 showed higher sensitivity to short-circuit currents and the short-circuit currents caused remagnetization of the upper part of the magnet in the opposite direction. The anisotropy of the PM implemented in the model improved the magnetic field simulation inside the magnet and partially protected the magnet from demagnetization by inclined fields. At last, the method was experimentally verified by tests on an iron core.
