Improved Models of Electric Machines for Real-Time Digital Simulations

Real-time digital simulators are valuable tools for non-destructively studying the transient behavior of electric machinery under stressed conditions. RTDS Technologies is a world-leader in the manufacturing of such simulators and is continually striving to improve its repertoire of available models of electrical equipment. The intern’s project will use special modeling methods to develop a new, more accurate model of electric machines (motors and generators) that accurately represent inter-winding faults. The work requires the construction of a mathematical model of the machine based on the geometry of its construction and physical properties of the materials. The developed model is expected to be useful to the customers of RTDS that are interested in the design of protection and diagnostic equipment for electrical machines.
