Integrated Platform for Motor Stator Sound Power Determination

This paper presents a unique approach for integrating the electromagnetic forces of a motor with the sound pressure level radiated from its stator frame. In addition, the effects of the inverter's pulse-width modulation (PWM) carrier frequency on the level of radiated noise are analyzed. Four ANSYS modules, namely, Simplorer, Maxwell, Mechanical, and Acoustics, are used to develop the control circuit, to calculate the electromagnetic forces of the motor, to simulate the mechanical structure of the stator frame, and, finally, to predict the radiated noise. A Prius 2004 internal permanent magnet motor was selected for the study due to the availability of this motor's design details. An optimum PWM frequency was identified and a trap filter was designed for the noise reduction. A simple experiment setup was built to validate the correlation of the PWM switching frequency with the motor's radiated noise.
