Project status: Submitted application
The aim of the project is to develop a unit that will consist of a high-speed synchronous motor (PMSM) and a small jet engine. This unit should expand the possibilities of the workplace focused on high-speed electrical machines, which were developed within the previous projects SGS15/190/OHK2/3T/12 and SGS18/176/OHK2/3T/12. In the first phase of the project, a design of connection for torque transfer between the PMSM and the small jet engine will be solved. In the next phase – and the main goal of the project – the development of a modern vector feedback control is planned, which would enable the operation of high-speed PMSM in motor mode, generator mode and in cooperation with a small jet engine. Thanks to the development of a control strategy, the high-speed PMSM should operate in 3 modes as a result. In the first mode, its mechanical energy is used to spin a small jet engine. In the second mode, a small jet engine is operated and a high-speed PMSM acts as a generator and produces electricity. In the last third mode, it is then possible to operate the model turbine engine in combustion mode, and the high-speed PMSM is used for speed control, or the mode is used to test the torque characteristic of the PMSM. In the last phase of the project, a thorough testing of the prototype and the developed algorithms is planned.
