Abstract

Fractional slot concentrated windings (FSCWs), or modular windings, have shown promise with permanent magnet machines. However, their inability to produce high quality travelling fields has limited their application from spreading to induction machines. This paper presents the design considerations and tradeoffs involved in applying FSCWs to five-phase induction machines using the conventional three-phase lap wound machine as a reference. Previous work has touched upon the application of modular windings to three-phase induction machines, concluding that a conventional distributed winding is superior in terms of torque production and rotor bar losses. In applications such as high frequency induction machines and manually wound electrical submersible pump motors, the proposed machine topology provides advantages that may warrant its application despite an apparent power density penalty. In this paper, a prototype five-phase modular winding induction machine designed to significantly reduce the effect of space harmonics is investigated through simulations and experimentally.
