Abstract: Accurate thermal modelling of electrical machines is important for electromagnetic performance determination of a design. This study presents the impact of rotation on convective cooling of a through-ventilated motor – a design equivalent to the Tesla S 60 traction motor design. Machine temperatures after steady state with and without considering rotation effects are compared, and the influence on the machine continuous performance is investigated.
