Successful first Aeronamic tests of 200,000 rpm electrical machine
Just before the turn of the year Aeronamic’s Product Development engineers successfully performed a first series of tests with a high speed electrical machine. The tests were performed with an internally developed high-speed, high-performance inverter exploiting silicon-carbide MOSFETs technology. The electrical machine, together with the corresponding power electronics, operates at speeds exceeding 200,000 rpm and a power rating of 5 kW. During the tests the prototype machine was run up to 225,000 rpm.
The permanent magnet motor is fitted with a centrifugal compressor and is designed, together with the corresponding electronic control unit, to be applied as an e-compressor in a variety of applications.
