ADVANCED MOTOR DESIGN

The paper summarises the development of the electric rotating machine since its origin over 100 years ago, and the improvements which have taken place in motor power/weight ration during the last 50 years. The wide range of electric motors available today is investigated, with comparision of their original and present day applications. Choosing a motor type for traction application involves the consideration of a number of design factors which are dealt with in this paper. Present day design and manufacture of electric motors is discussed with regard to economic considerations, design methods, and the role of new materials. The paper concludes with a look at possible future developments in rotating machines. /Author/TRRL/
