Hi!

I could not find a formula to directly calculate the losses there. I found this pdf with a formula on page 7. Unfortunately in german, and with a pitfall for non-insiders: The losses are in Power per Weight.

And of course the formula only fits to thin laminations compared to their width.

servus,
Martin

Not a half but a quarter of the original losses when halving the thickness.

So if I made stator plates out of some really thin shim stock, say .002" (.05mm, I think...), would the thinness make up for the lack of silicon (resistance)?

Good Luck!

The silicon is not for resistance but for forming strandlike barriers/fences to guide the lines of force into streams and control any side movements into adjoining laminations causing collisons/hinderence that generate heat,so im led to believe

Hmmmm most cheap motors use .5mm lams and the better ones use .21 lams so you can expect an decrease in losses around 25%..

I'll have to see how that formula plays out with several of my motors...

Thanks,
B

eddy current losses should decrease to (0.21/0.5) of the initial losses,
or a decrease by 82%

unfortunately hysteresis losses dont...

Prinz...I can't find out how to contact you. I've got some questions about sourcing stator laminations. Send me a PM with your email address if it's not too much trouble. (sorry for hijacking the thread...I'll delete this message soon
