Abstract:In this study the temperature increase and heat dissipation in the air gap of a cylindrical mini rotor stator system has been analyzed. A simple thermal model based on lumped parameter thermal networks has been developed. With this model the temperature dependent air properties for the fluid-rotor interaction models have been calculated. Next the complete system has also been modeled by using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with Ansys-CFX and Ansys. The results have been compared and the capability of the thermal networks method to calculate the temperature of the air between the rotor and stator of a high speed micro rotor has been discussed.
