Next Generation of the Highly Efficient Traction Electromechanical Systems With Permanent Magnets Free Motors

A novel theoretical and practical development for highly efficient traction electromechanical systems based on the induction and synchronous reluctance motors is presented, which allows to overcome the problem of permanent magnets limited availability. New nonlinear and adaptive control methods have been developed for traction electrical drives and hybrid energy storage systems based on batteries and ultra capacitors. The theory of vector control systems design was extended to class of highly saturated electric motors using their improved mathematical models.

Energy supply system for high-frequency drone reluctance switched motors with multi-cell converters and space-timemodulationвачами і просторово-часовою модуляцією

Drones are widely used to solve many practical problems. The main parameters of drones are flight range, load capacity, speed and shunting characteristics. Currently, the best technical characteristics are drones with permanent magnet motors and lithium-polymer batteries. Placing more pairs of poles on the rotor reduces the size of the motor while maintaining the same torque, but requires the use of more complex, spatio-temporal laws of voltage modulation and multichannel power converters, which slightly increases the weight of the power supply system. not used in practice.

Development of disk connections between billets in columns and energy-efficient graphitizing regulations for electrodes in direct-heating furnaces

The requirements for electric contact joints between workpieces in the core columns of Kastner furnaces are formulated. The choice of a material - graphite foam - for making electric contact gaskets is justified. Rational form and thickness of electric contact pads have been determined, the glue for their fixation between electrode blanks has been selected. A mold for forming electrocontact pads has been developed and prototypes of pads of different shapes, thickness and density have been made in order to check their suitability for forming Kastner furnace core under industrial conditions.
