Abstract

In the last years, Wide Band Gap devices are seeing a significant widespread in electric drives, due to their higher performance compared to conventional semiconductors. However, they also produce higher electric stress due to over-voltages and uneven voltage distributions among winding turns of electrical machines fed by them, which can lead to premature failures and/or reduced lifetimes.This paper presents a sensitivity analysis on the voltage distribution across stator winding turns of an electric motor intended for aerospace applications. The effects of the surge voltage characteristic parameters, such as dv/dt, voltage magnitude and parasitic impedances, are investigated. An equivalent circuit approach, based on the multi-transmission line theory, is developed and implemented in MatLab-Simulink environment, while the relevant circuital parameters are estimated through finite element analysis performed with MagNet and ElecNet software.
