Abstract

One of a major objective is to analyze the effect of internal and external convection coefficients in the heat transfer generated by electric motors and characterize intervals of feasible values, in practical terms, for these coefficients. Another objective is to determine the motor core temperature, considering the environmental and operational conditions of the motor installation and the heat flux Q0 (fixed) in the fins. To achieve the objectives were developed analytical solutions for determining the temperature variations in the fins, performance and electric motor efficiency, considering heat flow constant at the base of the fins and the possible variations in temperature of surround media. The heat flux at the base of the fins, in this case, is the minimum necessary for satisfactory electric motor performance and the core temperature is within the safety range stipulated by the manufacturer. The obtained results characterize a range of possible values for the inner and outer heat transfer coefficients.
