Permanent magnets play a key role in permanent magnet motors. They are the key components for generating a stable magnetic field, which realizes the rotation of the motor through the interaction between the magnetic field and the current.
Therefore their performance and characteristics directly affect the performance and efficiency of the motor. Therefore, the following key factors need to be considered when selecting permanent magnets need to be taken into account:
1. Magnetic properties: The magnetic energy density and residual flux density of permanent magnets are important indicators for evaluating their magnetic properties. High magnetic energy density and residual flux density means stronger magnetic field output and higher torque density.
2. Operating temperature: Different permanent magnet materials have different adaptability to operating temperature. When selecting permanent magnets, it is necessary to consider the maximum temperature that may be reached during motor operation and to select a material with sufficient thermal stability.
3. Strength and shape: Select the appropriate permanent magnet material and shape according to the specific application requirements. Different permanent magnet materials have different processing difficulties and malleability. Common magnet shapes include round, square, curved or complex shapes.
4. Cost and Availability: Consider the cost and availability of permanent magnets to meet budget and supply chain requirements. Some rare metal magnets (e.g. NdFeB) are relatively expensive, while some ferrite materials are relatively inexpensive.
5. Application requirements: Selection of permanent magnets is based on specific application requirements. Different applications, such as electric vehicles, wind power generation, mechanical drives, etc., have different requirements for permanent magnet materials.
When making permanent magnet selection, it is recommended to consult professional permanent magnet material manufacturers, motor design engineers or magnet experts. They can provide more detailed and accurate advice based on your specific application requirements to ensure the most suitable permanent magnet is selected.
