Abstract:This thesis summarizes the testing of an iron-filled resin to impregnate armature windings within a toothless air-core electric motor. The objective is to compare the magnetic permeabilities with thermal losses through an ecore test setup to extrapolate how the resin would behave within a high-speed electric motor. More specifically, the goal is to characterize the power losses within the iron resin using the Steinmetz equation to extrapolate the losses inside high-speed electric motors. These characterizations were conducted using a calorimetric experiment to compute losses within the system. The results are important because by increasing the power output and maintaining a low weight, power density can be increased. The results of this experiment will help predict if an iron resin will increase the permeability allowing for a higher power density within the electric motors while keeping power emitted low. These experiments are run for the NASA Fixed Wing project to improve the power density of the electric motor to 8 HP/kg while maintaining 96% efficiency.
