The National MagLab, headquartered at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL, is the only lab of its kind in the United States and is the premier destination for scientists and engineers from all over the world to conduct foundational research on new
Small group discussions will provide attendees a deep-dive into a topic and to connect and interact with other conference participants while enjoying breakfast. If you are interested in leading a small group discussion or have a topic idea, please contact Shannon Given.
Anisotropic injection insert or over-molding of permanent magnetic materials in a thermoplastic matrix is well established technology, which enables manufacturing of complex shapes, highly automated processes and net shaped products magnetized to desired level and magnetic pattern in essentially one processing step.
Mechanical stress, high temperature and harmonic distortion of the excitation voltage can significantly influence magnetic properties of soft and hard magnetic materials used in automotive applications. The residual stress remaining in the motor laminations after manufacturing processes, such as punching, housing shrink
Performance Comparison of Motors Fitted with Magnet-to-Magnet Recycled or Conventionally Manufactured Sintered NdFeB
Neodymium iron boron (NdFeB) based magnets have high magnetic energy densities and thus are the material of choice for motor designs in electric vehicles, where traction motors must be as small, lightweight, and efficient as possible. However, recent fluctuations in the price
For the permanent magnet design, different methods are available. FEM and other numerical simulation methods have become of high importance during the last two decades, both for magnet manufacturers as well as their customers. Those techniques have replaced analytical approaches like magnetic
Significant Weight Reduction of Three-Phase Transformers through Advancements in Core Construction and Materials
Three phase transformers are commonly used for powering DC brushless motors in conjunction with 3-phase, alternating current power systems. The power transformer is a key component of the conversion system. Its design is critical in reducing the weight and size of the
This presentation is directed toward those who are designing or specifying advanced technology devices. Silicon-Iron has been the mainstay for motor and transformer laminations for more than 60 years. Other materials are more costly but often are required for enhanced efficiency, greater
