PROJECT TITLE :
Magnetic Equivalent Circuit Modeling of the AC Homopolar Machine for Flywheel Energy Storage
This paper develops a magnetic equivalent circuit model appropriate to the look and optimization of the synchronous ac homopolar machine. The ac homopolar machine is of explicit interest in the appliance of grid-based flywheel energy storage, where it's the potential to significantly cut back self-discharge associated with magnetic losses. The ac homopolar machine options each axial and radial magnetizing flux methods, which requires finite part analysis to be conducted in three-D. The computation time related to 3-D finite part modeling is extremely prohibitive in the planning process. The magnetic equivalent circuit model developed in this paper is shown to be a viable different for calculating many design performance parameters and has a computation time which is orders of magnitude but that of three-D finite part analysis. Results obtained from the developed model are shown to be in good agreement with finite part and experimental results for varying levels of saturation.
