  • Publication number: 20220200375
    Abstract: A synchronous reluctance motor, in particular a four-pole synchronous reluctance motor includes a stator with 48 stator grooves for receiving a winding system; a reluctance rotor, which is spaced apart from the stator by an air gap. The reluctance rotor has axes with a high magnetic conductivity (d-axis) and axes with low magnetic conductivity (q-axis). Provision is made for an arrangement of magnetically conductive flux-conducting portions and magnetic flux barriers, which are arranged such as to form the d-axis and the q-axis of the reluctance rotor. The reluctance rotor has a geometric groove separation angle of ?r 6° or 10°, which angle is between two adjacent magnetic flux barriers at the air gap.

  • Publication number: 20220190689
    Abstract: A machine tool includes a machine control unit to output control signals to drives for machine elements. A tool which machines a workpiece is thereby moved relative to the workpiece in a position-controlled manner. Arranged in a first region of one machine element is an active vibration damper to damp vibration in a second region of the machine elements as the workpiece is machined by the tool. In order to detect the vibration, a first sensor is arranged in the first region of the machine element and a second sensor is arranged on another machine element or in a different region of the one machine element. Actual values detected by the first and second sensors and corresponding target values are supplied to a dual controller which determines on the basis of these values, a resulting manipulated variable for the active vibration damper and actuates the active vibration damper accordingly.

  • Publication number: 20220187796
    Abstract: Elements of a machine are moved relative to one another along several axes. A monitoring device receives groups of position values of the axes which specify the relative position of the elements to one another. The surfaces and/or volumes of the elements taking up working space are determined therefrom. The monitoring device checks whether a collision risk between the elements exists. The monitoring device models at least parts of the surfaces of the elements with two-dimensional splines defined by nodes and checkpoints. The monitoring device further determines from the checkpoints of the splines for sections envelopes which envelop respective element in the respective section, and uses the respective envelope as a surface that is taken up by the respective element in the respective section. Boundary lines of faces of the envelopes are straight connecting lines of the checkpoints.
