  • Patent number: 10903724
    Abstract: The present invention provides a rotation angle detector capable of detecting a rotation angle of a rotor in the same manner as at normal time even when abnormality such as disconnection or a short circuit occurs, and capable of reducing the number of terminals. When one spatial order cycle of the output winding is an electrical angle of 360°, a phase difference between a first output winding and a second output winding and a phase difference between the second output winding and a third output winding are set at an electrical angle ?, and ??180°×n (n is an integer).

  • Publication number: 20200395875
    Abstract: A multigroup, multiphase rotary electric machine control device including: a control target calculator to calculate an initial current command value of each phase based on a torque command value; a correction coefficient calculator to calculate a per-group correction coefficient corresponding to each group from a spatial mode M (M is 0 or a positive integer) of an electromagnetic force caused by magnetic flux density variation with respect to a rotational periodicity at the time of rotation of the multigroup, multiphase rotary electric machine; and a current command value corrector to calculate a current command value of the each phase, which is corrected based on the initial current command value and the per-group correction coefficient.

  • Patent number: 10855121
    Abstract: Provided is a rotary electric machine capable of reducing an amount of leakage magnetic flux passing through connecting portions. A cutout portion is formed in the connecting portion so as to be located on a side closer to a magnetic air gap portion. The connecting portion has a slot portion-side thin connecting portion formed so as to be closer to a slot portion than the cutout portion. A slot projecting portion projecting from the slot portion toward the magnetic air gap portion with respect to the slot portion-side thin connecting portion is formed in a portion of the connecting portion that is shifted in the circumferential direction from a portion of the connecting portion in which the slot portion-side thin connecting portion is formed. The slot projecting portion is arranged on each of circumferential sides of the cutout portion.

  • Patent number: 10833549
    Abstract: In the armature winding of a rotary electric machine, in a series coil portion group, the numbers of turns of conducting wire in the coil portions that have an electrical angular phase difference of ?k that satisfies ?1<?k?m are different than the numbers of turns of conducting wire in the ?1 and ?m coil portions, and are also different than the numbers of turns of conducting wire in the coil portions that are adjacent to the ?k coil portions on two sides in a circumferential direction of the stator core, and phases of the ?k coil portions are also different than phases of each of the coil portions that are adjacent to the ?k coil portions on the two sides in the circumferential direction.

  • Patent number: 10404124
    Abstract: A rotary electric machine includes: a rotor; and a stator including: a stator core; and an armature winding that is mounted to the stator core. The armature winding includes by a plurality of identical-phase winding portions in which identical-phase coil portions among coil portions in which conducting wires are wound in concentration onto respective teeth are connected together into a series circuit by crossover wires, and that also have lead wires at two end portions. Each of the lead wires of each of the identical-phase winding portions is led out in a first axial direction of the rotor from coil portions that have identical phase, that are disposed to be adjacent in a circumferential direction of the stator core; and all of the crossover wires of each of the identical-phase winding portions are led out in a second axial direction of the rotor.
