Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PERMANENT MAGNET ATTACHMENT IN AN ELECTROMECHANICAL MACHINE
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ POUR INSTALLER DES AIMANTS PERMANENTS DANS UNE MACHINE ÉLECTROMÉCANIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method for the installation and removal of permanent magnets in a permanent magnet electromechanical machine, for example a wind turbine power unit generator. A magnet holder is mounted on a magnet carrying structure such as a rotor. Permanent magnets may be inserted into and removed from the magnet holder after the electromechanical machine is assembled. In this manner, permanent magnets may be installed on the magnet carrying structure by an interference fit, without using bolts or adhesives, to facilitate both assembly and removal for maintenance and repair.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un appareil et un procédé pour installer et retirer des aimants permanents dans une machine électromécanique à aimants permanents, par exemple une génératrice éolienne. Un porte-aimant est monté sur une structure porte-aimant telle qu'un rotor. Des aimants permanents peuvent être insérés et retirés du porte-aimant après l'assemblage de la machine électromécanique. De cette manière, des aimants permanents peuvent être installés sur la structure porte-aimant par ajustement avec serrage, sans nécessiter de boulons ni de colle, afin de faciliter à la fois l'assemblage et le retrait pour la maintenance et les réparations.
