Magnetic Field in the Air Gap

  • Slobodan N. Vukosavic
Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)


This chapter presents an analysis of the magnetic and electrical fields in the air gap of a cylindrical machine. It is assumed that the fields come as a consequence of electrical current in the windings. The magnetic field in the air gap is created by the currents in both stator and rotor, which generate the corresponding stator and rotor magnetomotive forces.
