Descrizione The research activity is associated with a new EU research contract coordinated by INRIM (IT) and in cooperation with POLITO (IT), PTB (GER), NPL (UK), CMI (CZ), CNRS (FR), IFW (GER), UNOTT (UK) starting in September 2020.
Magnetic steel sheets are the core of electric motors, generators, and transformers, which produce and convert virtually all the energy obtained from conventional and renewable sources. Steel producers strive to develop thinner and highly energy-efficient grain-oriented (GO) and non-oriented (NO) magnetic steels with enhanced permeability, apt for kHz frequencies. Pressing needs for the miniaturization of devices and high-speed rotating machines require increasing working frequencies. Novel products based on electrical steel require magnetic loss measurements and modelling under somewhat extreme operating conditions, with high temperature, 2D excitation, distorted flux with high harmonic content, skin effects and dc currents. Still, only a few facilities are available to test and model materials under these complex conditions for a correct design and loss estimation of magnetic and power electronics devices.
- Instrument interfacing and programming for real-time feedback loop applications.
- Experimental data collection and analysis.
- Modeling of hysteresis and loss data.
Note The activities will be mainly performed at INRIM, Materials science group, and at PolItecnico di Torino, Department of Energy.
