    Abstract: In a stator having a stator core and phase windings, slots are formed in the stator core and each slot accommodates conductors in a layer structure from one end to the other end of the slot in a radial direction of the stator core. The phase windings in one phase have conductors accommodated in a first slot and a second slot which are adjacently formed in the stator core. An electrical connection between the conductors in a n-th layer and the conductors in a (n+1)-th layer includes that the conductors accommodated in the first slot are electrically connected together, the conductors accommodated in the second slot are electrically connected together, and the conductors accommodated in the first slot are electrically connected with the conductors accommodated in the second slot. This connection eliminates a phase difference in the first slot and the second slot in a distributed winding structure.

    Abstract: In a stator having a stator core and three phase windings, slots are formed in the stator core. The phase winding are accommodated in layers, from one side to the other side in the corresponding slot along a radial direction of the stator core. The phase windings are arranged in a star-delta composite connection structure. The phase winding in each phase is comprised of conductors accommodated in a first slot and a second slot adjacently arranged in the stator core so that the conductor in the n-th layer is electrically connected to the conductor in the (n+1)-th layer, ascending order, per slot. Because each winding has the same length and no difference in electric potential occurs between the star connection and the delta connection, this structure suppress generation of operation noise and a circulating current through the stator core and prevents loss due to the circulating current.

    Abstract: A winding method to accomplish a stator coil of a motor by use of the blank slot technique. The number of stator slot of the motor is not an integer multiple of the number of poles, thus the number of stator slots, to which each individual pole corresponds, is a fraction. Either to install stator coils in stator slots such that the winding locations are the same as those of using fraction slot winding method, but in this case, some of the stator slots filled with long pole-pitch coils to perform double-layer winding will be left empty and will not be embedded with in the stator coil, or let the two neighboring sides slots of the stator, which requires to stride over a ling pole-pitch to perform double-layer winding, leave half of the slot empty an embed only half of the slot with stator coil, therefore it ends up with a simple winding mode and attains the object of eliminating cogging phenomena of a motor. Both of these winding can result in phase balance.

  • Patent number: 4107587
    Abstract: A coreless three-phase DC motor comprising a coil type armature formed with insulated windings. The armature is of a disc- or cylindrical-shape and is set rotatably against a field magnet provided with 2n magnetic poles N and S magnetized in equal angular widths. On the surface of the armature there are 3n/2 three-phase armature coils, wherein the angular width of each of the coils is equal to the width of the field magnet pole, the coils of each phase are shifted by 180.degree. of electrical angle from each other, and all the armature coils are arranged at equal angular intervals and not superimposedly with respect to one another.

  • Patent number: 4013909
    Abstract: A pole-amplitude modulation type, speed-changing, 3-phase alternating current electric motor or generator having a composite stator winding comprising two 3-phase winding components. The 3-phase winding components are in themselves pole-amplitude modulation pole-changing, 3-phase windings, but may possess unsuitable electrical characteristics for practical use. The two components are combined the first component being wound on the first half of the stator and the second component being wound on the second half of the stator whereby the composite stator winding is given acceptable electrical characteristics, particularly in respect of harmonic content, or sub-harmonic content, of MMF waveform.

  • Patent number: 3953753
    Abstract: A three-phase alternator, particularly suited for automotive use, having three stator winding sections each including a given number of coils, with each coil encompassing two stator poles and separated from the next coil in the section by an unwound pole. The rotor poles are of tapered construction, each having an effective width of two stator poles. In a preferred "brushless" construction, a D.C. excitation coil encompasses a tubular center leg of a stationary magnetic core of E-shaped cross-sectional configuration, with flux of one polarity going to the rotor partly through a shaft journalled in the center leg of the core and through a radial air gap of substantial surface area, and flux of the opposite polarity going to the rotor through a large-area radial air gap adjacent the outer flange of the core.
