Wondering what magnet material to select for your application? Attend our tutorial at the ITEC 2017 conference and learn more. Arnold's Dave Farnia will discuss the impact of magnet material selection on transformers as well as permanent magnet machines. Basic concepts for electrical steels and permanent magnets will be covered, as well as their impact on overall system performance. Dave will wrap it up with pricing trends in both permanent magnets and thin gauge electrical steels.
Permanent magnet assemblies and electric machines are challenged to achieve maximum power density in a smaller, lighter package. Join us at the IEEE International Electric Machines & Drives Conference, where we'll take a closer look at the material technology and motor topology of two high speed applications.
We’re excited to share that Arnold Magnetic Technologies is partnering with Ames Laboratory to improve the magnetic properties of Alnico for use in energy efficient traction-drive motors.
Arnold’s Aaron Williams will give a presentation at the
(TechCon) in New Orleans in October. The presentation will discuss permanent and soft magnetic materials that improve performance in motor and generators.
Every type of permanent magnet has a unique set of characteristics that can affect how is performs in various applications. When evaluating magnet options for your project, pay attention to the following:
Smaller Motors, Bigger Design Challenges
Permanent magnet (PM) motors for EV applications have unique design challenges. As electric motors become smaller and faster, designers must consider the potential effects of electrical drive frequencies, magnetic eddy currents, laminated steel core loss, mechanical stresses on the quickly rotating shaft (rotor dynamics), and electrical control of the motor through the inverter.
