Rotor Peripheral Speed The maximum allowable peripheral speed of the rotor is a central consideration in machine design. With present-day steel alloys, rotor peripheral speeds of 50,000 ft/min (or about 250 m/s) represent the design limit. 1 ft/min = 0.0051 m/s Example: A two-pole, 60-Hz generator has a synchronous speed of 3600 rpm. If the machine must e capable of sustaining a 20% over speed and the maximum allowable rotor peripheral t/ 0.005 /s be capable of sustaining a 20% over speed and the maximum allowable rotor peripheral speed is 50,000 ft/min, determine the maximum allowable rotor diameter ( D r ). in 21 . 44 600 12 50000 12 max r r v D 3600 2 . 1 2 . 1 s n 2 2 2 . 1 2 2 . 1 2 . 1 max max r m r m m r D f D r v Note: rev/min) in ( 2 . 1 ) length/min in ( 2 . 1 length/s) in ( max m r m r r n v f v D J.

Part 2 – Armature Design
Number of Armature Slots For a m-phase synchronous machine, the number of armature ots is ultiples of P A. Integral S/P slots ( S ) is multiples of mP . Example: For a 2 pole machine, the number of slots can be 6,12,18,24,30,36… For a 4 pole machine, the number of slots can be 12, 24,36,… Integral S/P may cause extensive cogging or detent torque since Fractional /P all pole faces will line up with slot openings at the same time. B. Fractional S/P For a m-phase synchronous machine, the number of armature ots is ultiples of B u t P kes a fractional number. slots ( S ) is multiples of m . But
