Abstract / Description of output

This paper presents the thermal performance of NGenTec Axial Flux Permanent Magnet (AFPM) prototype generator operating at 100rpm through the thermal analysis on single stage. The CFD model coupled the heat transfer and fluid flow modelling provides good interpretation of the thermal behaviour of the test generator at steady state. In the comparison of two ventilation conditions, the CFD simulations show the temperature drop of 4-5°C same as what the experimental measurements obtained.
