Analytical Approach to Model a Saturated Interior Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor for a Hybrid Electric Vehicle 2011-01-0347

This paper presents an analytical approach to model an interior permanent magnet motor for a hybrid electric vehicle. Therefore, an analytical model for the calculation of parameters of an interior permanent magnet motor is presented. Furthermore, these parameter values are compared with good agreement to those from finite-element analysis and experimental data. An analytical model to simulate the behaviour of the motor and its control are developed and validated by comparison with experimental data. The thermal analysis of the motor prototype is also done. At the end, the presented model is embedded in the hybrid vehicle simulator and improvements are proposed, such as an analytical approach based on the finite element results to include the core saturation effect.
