  • Publication number: 20200393176
    Abstract: High efficiency of a compressor that compresses a mixed refrigerant containing at least 1,2-difluoroethylene is achieved. A compressor (100) includes a motor (70) that has a rotor (71) including permanent magnets (712) and thus is suitable for a variable capacity compressor in which the number of rotations of the motor can be changed. In this case, it is possible to change the number of rotations of the motor in accordance with an air conditioning load in an air conditioner (1) that uses a mixed refrigerant containing at least 1,2-difluoroechylene. It is thus possible to enable high efficiency of the compressor (100).

  • Patent number: 10348174
    Abstract: An electric motor includes a rotor and a stator including a stator core, a plurality of armature windings, a plurality of field windings, and a plurality of bonded magnets. The stator core has a plurality of teeth alternately defining field slots and armature slots along a circumferential direction, and a stator yoke magnetically coupling the plurality of teeth opposite the rotor. Each armature winding is wound around two of the teeth sandwiched between an adjacent pair of the armature slots. Each field winding is wound around two of the teeth sandwiched between an adjacent pair of the field slots. The magnets are individually located in the field slots while opposing the field windings in the radial direction. Each adjacent pair of the magnets along the circumferential direction respectively has an adjacent pair of pole surfaces, with the adjacent pair of pole surfaces having a same polarity.

  • Patent number: 9923424
    Abstract: A radial gap type rotating electrical machine includes a field and an armature. The field includes a permanent magnet and a magnetic ring which serves as a back yoke of the permanent magnet. The magnetic ring is provided at a position farther from the armature than the permanent magnet, and includes a recess at a magnetic pole center. The magnetic pole center is a center of a magnetic pole in a circumferential direction with respect to a rotation axis. A thickness of the recess in the radial direction around the rotation axis as a center comes to locally thin.
