Graphical Abstract:


Background: This article deals with the analysis on improved performance and efficiency of induction motor by using nano composites for stator winding.

Methods: The nanocomposites are added with different enamel. Enamel is mostly preferred for induction motors’ winding, due to three main reasons: adhesion, infusion and plaster. To predetermine the plaster and nanocomposite conductor’s behavior when they are used for transmitting AC currents and developing AC magnetic field, a numerical analysis is performed. The total heat losses are determined by the heat run test. Open circuit and short circuit tests are used to analyze the performance and efficiency of the proposed induction motor.

Results: The AC losses of composite and plaster conductors having good accord are compared with previous solid and hollow conductors. Analysis of the coil by a composite and plaster conductor shows that the AC losses in low current are lower than the coil, which is wrapped by a solid, and hallow conductors. Due to this reason, composite and plaster conductors are considered advantageous for low and medium power motors.

Conclusion: Adding nano composites with the plaster material will help to improve electrical, thermal and mechanical characteristics. The property of enamel can change the lifetime of induction motor. The induction motor winding makes use of nano composites SiO2 and TiO2 with enamel coated.

Keywords: Squirrel cage induction motor, plaster, composite, SiO2, flux and heat distribution, nanocomposites.
