Malliband, PD and McMahon, RA (2005) Duty cycle and modelling considerations in three-phase induction motor drives for washing machines. Proceedings of the International Conference on Power Electronics and Drive Systems, 1. pp. 765-770.Full text not available from this repository.
Three-phase induction motors offer significant advantages over commutator motors in some domestic appliances. Models for wide speed range three-phase induction motors for use in a horizontal axis washing machine have been developed using the MEGA finite element package with an external formulation for calculating iron losses. Motor loss predictions have been verified using a novel high accuracy calorimeter. Good agreement has been observed over a wide speed range at different loadings. The model is used to predict motor temperature rise under typical washing machine loading conditions to ensure its limiting temperature is not exceeded and enables alternative designs to be investigated without recourse to physical prototypes. © 2005 IEEE.
