1. WOW thanks a lot!!! That explains everything. I needed to sum the 3 graphs of power, it makes sense now. I still can't believe I have 97% efficiency with this thing lol I'll double check it. Have a good day.
2. Just to be sure, this is how I'm doing the power balance right now (the numbers are rounded): Torqueelectromag(mechanicalset rotor) = 27Nm average Mechanical_power= 27Nm*1500*2*PI()/60 =4200W ** PowerP(current source) over a period = 2100W rms value * 3 current sources =6300W = P_input Then I calculate the joule losses on the stranded coil conductors with a sensor. It gives a triphasic sine wave that goes from 0 to 9W . The sum of the 3 waves is about 13W constant. The same but for the resistors that I put into the circuit: sine wave with 30W peak. the sum of 3 waves is 45W constant. Bertotti losses = 2,56W Since you mention I need to multiply by four, the end result should be like: P_input = 4200W + 13W*4 + 45W*4 + 2,56W *4 = 4442 W P_input from current sources = 6300W diference = 1800W **Considering mechanical losses=0. Also, the motor is running at 1500rpm.
3. Thanks for answering, I've simulated a quarter and applied the periodicity to obtain the full motor. My actual bertotti losses are 2,58W * 4 quarters = 10W and I think it's too low. I'm not sure what I'm calculating incorrectly. I think I'm also mixing things up because I'm not sure when I need to multiply by 4 and when I don't need to. https://send.firefox.com/download/25f117c80a3e1ff3/#UjuguY_jRnr6PvaRreOgfg This is the link of my solved flu project. I did it on FLux 2018. On the advanced menu you can see the power balance macro, it came integrated on the software.

5. Also, I have a question regarding the Bertotti losses. It computes the average iron losses over a period but.. does it take into account the length of the motor or it just computes the loses on one slice of steel? Basically what I'm asking is, do I need to multiply the average losses * length of motor / thickness of steel slice to obtain the iron losses of the full motor?
7. I want to simulate an Induction Motor using current sources on flux. The circuit I'm using it's attached on a picture. Right now I've set the current sources with sinusoidal waves of current I_a=10*sin(100*pi()*TIME) and I_b=10*sin(100*pi()*TIME-(2*pi()/3)). However the electromagnetic torque curve gives really odd results. I've attached the Flu file of this motor as well, so you can hopefully find my error cause I'm lost. I know I can use steady state ac magnetic 2d to simulate this kind of motor, but I wanted to use transient magnetic. Thanks for your time, Have a good day. induccion.FLU.zip
8. Error with transient thermal - transient magnetic cosimulation. I´ve created the simulation following the flux documentation but after solving I get an error on the thermal side : BPR_RIDENT => REFPRO not found BPR_RIDENT => failed BPR_BSIMPLE => failed Also I can't see any result. The temperature remains constant.
9. I'm doing a transient magnetic - steady state thermal cosimulation of a motor. I've set everything following the flux guide and started solving the problem. However on the thermal side I get an error saying "Unable to calculate torque : there is no air zone around mechanical set : MECHANICALSET_ROTOR". I didn't have this problem on the magnetic side and I had previously solved the transient magnetic problem and got a torque value correctly. What am I doing wrong here? By the way, the airgap is set manually to an air material that I have created that has similar properties to air. I think I did this because in the past I had problems when I set the airgap to be compressible air (or something like that).
