Finite element analysis of inter-turn fault in a brushless direct current drive
Jawad Faiz, Ahmad Jafari
The key problems in condition monitoring and fault diagnosing brushless direct current motors (BLDCs) include: 1) establishing a model that takes into account the influence of various nonlinear and complex factors to reveal the short circuit (SC) of winding; 2) exploring the relationship between different factors and magnetic field, to detect the SC fault in the early stage, and 3) proposing post-SC measures. This paper simulates a healthy and SC faulted BLDC motor including its drive. To do this, the Maxwell and Simplorer software are coupled to study the drive of BLDCs with more details.
