  • Patent number: 11146145
    Abstract: A rotor assembly for an electrodynamic machine is provided. The rotor assembly comprises a lamination section and an end connector. The lamination section comprises rotor lamination sheets formed to define an annular array of axial cooling ducts mechanically supported by a plurality of radial and arched structural members that define an array of arched or angled supports to readily pass a magnetic flux via an optimal flux path. The lamination section further comprises rotor slots, with rotor conductor bars being disposed in the rotor slots. The end connector is supported by the rotor conductor bars. An axial space is formed in the lamination section by the annular array of axial cooling ducts for guiding a cooling fluid flow in an axial direction through the rotor assembly.

  • Patent number: 11139718
    Abstract: An electric machine includes a frame and a plurality of electrical components including a rotor assembly and a stator assembly. The electric machine further includes an auxiliary blower mounting arrangement for cooling the electrical components and/or a modular exhaust assembly for noise attenuation, wherein the modular exhaust assembly further has one or more louvers allowing cooling fluid for cooling the electrical components to exit the electric machine.

  • Publication number: 20210242749
    Abstract: A vertical electric machine comprises a specific structure that defines a double box construction for normalizing the vertical electric machine structure such that its two reed critical frequencies occur at a same frequency. The double box construction includes a first stiffness member having a first side wall in a lateral “X” direction and a second stiffness member having a second side wall in a lateral “Y” direction such that the second side wall is rotated 90 degrees relative to the first side wall. The first stiffness member and the second stiffness member are configured to produce equal stiffness in both lateral directions “X” and “Y”.

  • Publication number: 20160252209
    Abstract: An oil ring is disclosed that includes an annular ring body having an inner surface, an outer surface, and first and second side surfaces. At least a portion of one or more surfaces of the annular ring body is coated with a material that electrostatically repels lubricant such as lubricant that may be provided in a lubricant reservoir of an electrodynamic machine.
