Abstract:

A two-dimensional numerical analysis of the cross section of a homopolar inductor alternator supplying a rectifier load is developed. Besides the effects of the nonlinearities of the magnetic materials, the eddy currents induced in the rotar by the nonlinear load are considered. Thus, some of the partial difference equations are parabolic. The analysis is applied to determine eddy currents, waveshapes, and field excitations. The calculations are made for a 95 kVA homopolar inductor alternator, 115200 V3-phase 3,400 Hz 40,800 rmin.
