Mechanical Vibrations Theory And Applications
The frequency inverter current spectrum generates a complex magnetic field in the airgap producing attracting forces having a wide spectrum and leads to audible noise. A mathematical model is presented, predicting vibrations of a permanent magnet machine, based on the modal analysis technique including mechanical damping. Modal forces produced by the magnetic field, are related to the supply currents using a finite element calculation. Experimental results are presented.
