This Second Edition of Mechanical Design and Manufacturing of Electric Motors provides in-depth knowledge of design methods and developments of electric motors in the context of rapid increases in energy consumption, and emphasis on environmental protection, alongside new technology in 3D printing, robots, nanotechnology, and digital techniques, and the challenges these pose to the motor industry.
From motor classification and design of motor components to model setup and material and bearing selections, this comprehensive text covers the fundamentals of practical design and design-related issues, modeling and simulation, engineering analysis, manufacturing processes, testing procedures, and performance characteristics of electric motors today. This Second Edition adds three brand new chapters on motor breaks, motor sensors, and power transmission and gearing systems. Using a practical approach, with a focus on innovative design and applications, the book contains a thorough discussion of major components and subsystems, such as rotors, shafts, stators, and frames, alongside various cooling techniques, including natural and forced air, direct- and indirect-liquid, phase change, and other newly-emerged innovative cooling methods. It also analyzes the calculation of motor power losses, motor vibration, and acoustic noise issues, and presents engineering analysis methods and case-study results.
While suitable for motor engineers, designers, manufacturers, and end users, the book will also be of interest to maintenance personnel, undergraduate and graduate students, and academic researchers.
