Axial Field Magnetic Gear in 3D
Application ID: 22301
In this model, an axial field magnetic gear with a gear ratio of 5:2 is modeled. Both the high speed and low speed rotors consist of permanent magnet and back iron.
The low speed rotor consists of five pole-pairs, while the high speed rotor consists of two pole pairs, and the stationary steel consists of seven pole-pairs.
The Rotating Machinery, Magnetic interface is used to evaluate the torque ratio of the device. Due to the axial flux configuration, the full 3D model is required to investigate the device performance.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
