DYNAMOELECTRIC MACHINE Filed Nov. 19. 1928 JaLc 4 i I i a/ I Patented June 3, 1930 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE GEORGE L. BIN GLAND, OF NORWOOD,

OHIO, ASSIGNOR TO ALLIS-GHALMEBS MANUFAC- TUBING COMPANY, OF MILWAUKEE, WISGON SIN, A CORPORATION OF DELAWARE DYNAMO-ELECTRIC MACHINE Application filed November 19, 1928. Serial No. 320,268.

This invention relates in general to dynamo-electric machine construction, and has more particular relation to features of design and construction concerned with securing effective ventilation and cooling of the machine during operation.

One feature of the present invention is particularly concerned with facility for securing desired and effective ventilation of interior core portions of an element of a dynamo-electric machine, particularly the stator element thereof, through the use of ventilating passages or ducts through the core which insure the passage of cooling 1 air other than through the air-gap of the machine, these ventilating passages opening both axially and radiall and being so designed that the radial portions thereof are formed through the removal of the required 2 material of the core laminae without undul reducing the mechanical strength of the individual laminae or the core structure formed therefrom. Another feature of the present invention is concerned with the use of conductors of a hollow or tubular character disposed in slots of a core member of a dynanio-electric machine, particularly the rotor element thereof, and portions associated with these tubular conductors for suitably directing and insuring the passage of effective ventilating currents of air through the conductors. And the provisions for directing the air through the hollow conductors may be so associated with end connecting elements for the hollow conductors through the core as to insure removal of heat from the end connecting elements.

It is an object of the present invention to provide a dynamo-electric machine of improved design and construction embodying provisions for ventilating interior portions of either or both stator and rotor elements of the machine.

It is a further object of the present invention to provide a dynamo-electric machine of improved design and construction embodying an interiorly ventilated laminated core structure provided with ventilating ducts having a component in a radial direction and of such formation as to insure a high degree of mechanical strength of the individual laminae and the assembled core structure while insuring suitable ventilating or cooling effects.

It is a further object of the present invenparticularly set forth in the claims hereinafter.

There is disclosed in the drawings, as to an embodiment of the present invention, a dynamo-electric machine of the induction motor type having a secondary provided with a squirrel-cage winding. The stator of the motor is of the open or riveted frame type wherein the outer periphery of the stator core 10 is exposed to the air, this core bemg made up of annular laminae clamped together in a conventional manner between radially extending portions of end heads 12, as by bolts extending through the end heads and peripheral enlargements of the laminae, the end heads extending substantially beyond the normal periphery of the laminae and having at their outer edges axially outward extensions and being provided with spaced apertures 13 leading from the space within the axial extensions to the space radially outside of the core laminae, these end heads also being provided with base or foot portions 14. Spaced strengthening ribs may be provided between the outer face of the radial portion of the end heads 12 and the inner side of the axial extension therefrom, as indicated. A winding 15 is disposed in slots 16 at the inner periphery of the stator core and the end turns of this winding extend axially into the spaces within the outer axial flanges on the end heads, suitable conventional means being provided to anchor the end turns and other portions of the winding in desired operative position with respect to the end heads of stator core. End bells or housings 17 are provided for enclosing the ends of the stator and rotor of the machine, these end bells being provided with the usual centrally located bearing housings in which the bearings for the rotor shaft are mounted, and there being provided an aperture or apertures of suitable size outside of the bearing housing to permit the entrance of the required amount of air for passage through and cooling of the machine during operation.

The stator core is shown as being provided with four ventilating ducts, each having an axially extending passage or portion and a substantially radially extending passage communicating with the axially inner end of the axially extending passage of the duct and communicating with the outer air outside the periphery of the core. Two of these ducts 18 and 19 are similar and symmetrically arrangedabout the center line of the core, the axially extending portions 20 of these ducts opening through the end heads 12 and communicating at their inner ends with the radial portions or passages 21. A second pair of ventilating ducts 23 and 24 are similar one to another and are symmetrically positioned about the center line of the core. Each of these latter ducts includes an axially extending passage 25 and a generally radial portion communicating with the inner end of the axial passage opening through the end laminae or the relatively stifi' tooth support thereof, and including two offset radially extending portions 26 and 27 communicating with each other through an axial connecting passage 28, whose axial dimension may be as desired, and may well be only such as is afforded through immediate communication through the adjacent side wall portions at the radiall outer end of the passage 26 and the radially inner end of the passage 27. The outer passage 27 opens through the periphery of the core.

The desired formation of the ventilating ducts described may be secured through the use of core laminae havin apertures punched therein of such form and so relatively positioned as to constitute ten roups of perforated laminae, these roups, rom left to right in Fig. 1, being indicated as A, B, C, B, D, D, B'-, C, B and A, and an additional centrally disposed group E of unaperturcd laininee. The laminae of the groups A and A are similarly formed or apertured, as is also the case with the laminae of the groups B, B, B and B the laminae of the groups (J and C and the laminae of the groups D and D. From this it will be apparent that the core is made u of laminae of five different designs as to t 1e character of the apertures or slots formed therein for the production of the desired ventilating air passages.

The several axial assages of the ducts 18, 19, 28 and 24 are ormed by alined apertures, shown as circular, in the laminae of the several groups, except D, D, E, constituting the core. And the radial passages 21 of the ducts 18 and 19 and the radial passages 27 of the ducts 23 and 2 1 are formed by perforations or slots of generally rectangular form, in groups B and B and groups B and B respectively, of a width approximately equal to the diameter of the circular apertures forming the axial passages 21 and 25, with the radially inner ends of these perforations, preferably of semiclrcular shape where the passages communicate with the axial passages 18 and any axial passage that may exist at the connection 28 of passages 26 and 27. The radial passages 26 of the ducts 23 and 24 are formed by alined elongated perforations in the laminae of groups D and D, preferably formed with semi-circular ends where the passages 26 communicate with the axial passages 25 and any axial passage that may exist at the connection 28. Through the described combination of perforated laminae, the radial passages 21 of ducts 18 and 19 and passages 26 and 27 of ducts 23 and 24 are formed of rectangular cross-section and of substantially the same cross-sectional area as the axial passages 18, 19, 23 and 24 of circular crosssection. The right angular portions of the ducts 18 and 19 and the generally right angular portions of the ducts 23 and 2 1, with the offset radial portions produced by imperforate portions 29 of the laminae of groups B and B and the imperforate portions 31 of the laminae of groups D and D, insure that cooling air passes over an extended surface of the interior core portions formin the boundar1es of these passages, thus facili tating removal of heat from the core. Where the conditions as to operating temperatures and expense dictate it, the ducts 18 and 19 may be omitted, the correspondin laminae then being formed similar to mod? of groups C and C.

Further, through the provision of a staggcred efi ect as to the radial passages 26 and 27 of the ventilating ducts 23 and 24, it is possible to provide the desired discharge from the axial passages and through the outer periphery of the laminae, while avoiding slotting or perforating the laminae of the groups B, D, D and B to such an extent as to almost sever, and in any case very substantially weaken, these laminae, thus making them difficult to handle during the assembling of the rotor core; for it will be apparent that the radially inner edge of the axial passages 25 of the ventilating ducts 23 and 24 are quite close to the bottom, or radially outer side, of the winding slots 16 of the core, the positioning of the axial passages 25 reasonably close to the winding slots being desirable in order to facilitate dissipation of heat from the points at which the greater amount of the heat is generated, that is, llllinediately adjacent the winding itself. And through the imperforate portions 29 of the laminae of the groups B and B" and the iniperforate portions 31 of the laminae of the groups D and D, in addition to insuring suitable mechanical strength of the laminae, there are provided zig-zag ventilating ducts having relatively great surface area for contact by the circulating and cooling air currents.

The rotor core 35 is shown in the form of a group of annular laminae clamped together between end heads 36 and secured in position upon the rotor shaft. The core is provided with the usual peripheral slots, preferably of the partially closed type, tubular conductor bars, one set of alternate bars being indicated at 37 and the other set at 37', being inserted within these slots and having portions projecting beyond the core and end heads 36 and through the usual conductive end-connecting rings 38, 39, the ends of these tubular conductors being preferably soldered or otherwise rigidly mechanically and electrically connected to the end rings.

One end of each of these tubular conductor bars is machined to lie flush with the axially outer face of one of the end rings, and the other end of the bar projects slightly beyond the outer face of the other end ring, this projecting portion being indicated at 40. As indicated, one set 37* of alternate conductor bars have one end flush with the outer face of end ring 38, and the opposite end of the bars of this group have the portion projecting beyond the outer face of end ring 39.

Axially outside of the end rings 38 and 39 are disposed annular shroud or casing members 41, 42, respectively, these shrouds being of substantially similar construction and including a radial side wall portion 43 spaced from the outer face of the end ring,

to the length of the bar, and an provided with apertures of substantially the same size as the bore of the tubular conductor bars, these apertures being in alinement with the bores of alternate conductor bars at each end of the core, and the ends of the conductor bars fitting closely against the wall of the radial portions of the shrouds about the apertures 45.

With the above arrangement, alternate conductor bars have one end thereof flush with the outer face of one end ring, with their bores opening to the space within the chamber formed by this end ring and the annular shroud associated therewith; and the other end of each conductor of this group is so disposed as to have its bore communicating with an aperture 45 in the radial wall 48 of the shroud at the other end of the rotor. Through the provision of machined surfaces at the outer sides of the pro ecting portions 40 of the conductor bars, a relatively close fit may be provided between the axial flanges at the outer periphery of the shrouds and the end rings so as to insure substantially fluid-tight chambers open at their radially inner sides and from which there is communication, through the bores of alternate bars, to the opposite end of the rotor.

The annular shrouds 41 and 42 may be held in position by means of bolts 47 with their heads disposed at the outer side of each shroud and passing therethrough and through the adjacent end ring and threaded into spaced axially projecting portions 48 upon the end head 36, with a spacer 49 between the inner face of the radial portion of the shroud and the outer face ofthe corresponding end ring to insure the desired positioning of the radially inner edge of the shroud. The radially inner edge of the radial wall 43 of the shrouds 41, 42 may be provided with an outwardly extending guiding or directing lip to facilitate the entrance of air to the space or chamber within the shrouds, and an outwardly inclined deflectmg or guiding flange 52 may be provided axially outside of the apertured parts of the radial side wall of the shroud to insure that air discharged from the tubular conductor bars communicating with the apertures 45 is given an axially outward directional component after it leaves the discharge ends of the bores of the conductor bars.

In order to permit the circulation of cooling air currents through the tubular conductor bars, fan blades 54 are provided, the

same being attached to the inner i ace of the radial wall of each shroud, these fan blades being suitably shaped to insure the supply of an ample volume of cooling air under suitable pressure to and through the conductor bars during the operation of the machine.

Mounted on each end of the rotor at the axially outer side thereof is a series of fan vanes 56, the same being preferably mounted on the outer side of the radial walls of the shrouds 41, 42, these fan vanes having integral attaching flanges lying against the outer side of these radial walls on the shrouds, and the vanes or blades being preferably held in position by rivets passing through this radial portion of the shroud and through the flange portions of the fan blades 54 at the inner side of the shrouds, the inner and outer sets of fan blades 54 and 56, respectively, being thus capable of being assembled on the shrouds at the same time, as will be more a parent from Figs. 5 and 6.

Each set of an vanes 56 may have their outer ends secured to a shroud or guiding rim 57 of such size and so positioned as to secure the desired inflow of air to the fan and its discharge therefrom in the desired direction.

Openings 59 in the end bells 17 serve as inlets for cooling air drawn into the machine, a guidingor deflecting rim or flange 61 being attached to the inner wall of the end bell about the inlet opening 59 therethrough, as indicated, and serving, particularly in conjunction with the outer rim 57 of the fan vanes 56, to insure the passage of cooling air from outside the motor casing to the inlet side of the rotor fan vanes.

During o eration of the machine, air enters throng the o ening 59 in each end bell and the associated deflector 61, the major portion of the air being passed through the main ventilating fans 56, with a portion thereof slightly deflected by the outer side of the flange 52, and being discharged radially outward therefrom into the space between the end bell and the stator core and about the end turns of the stator winding 15. A smaller portion of the incoming air is drawn by the fan vanes 54 into the chambers formed by the shrouds 41, 42 with the rotor end rings 38. sutiicient pressure being developed to readily force this air through the tubular conductors 37 communicating with the chambers formed by the shrouds, to the opposite ends of the conductors, when the air is discharged through the openings 45 and deflected by the guiding flange 52 in the general direction of the air discharged by the main fan blades 56. The inclined flanges 52 serve to protect the discharge ends of the tubular conductors from impact head due to the fan vanes 56, and they also serve to insure that the air discharged from these conductors esca es without whistling or siren effect. A flat er portion of the incoming air is drawn by the axially extending portions of the tubular conductors 37, 37", between the spaced projections 48 on the end heads 36 and between the end heads and the end rings 38, this air passing over and serving to cool the surface of these extending portions of the conductors and being discharged against and about the end turns of the stator winding.

The air passing from the several fan elements associated with the rotor is discharged to the surrounding atmosphere through sev eral paths, the major portion of this air passing through the pairs of ventilating ducts 18, 19 and 23, 24, through the core in an axial and then in a radially outward direction to the outside atmosphere; and a second portion of this air is discharged through the apertures 13 located in the radial extensions of the stator end head members 12 to the space outside of the stator core.

If the flow of air through all of the tubular conductor bars of the core were in the same direction, a single inlet shroud chamber'would suflice, with the discharge through the opposite end of all the bars; but better and more uniform and eflicient cooling effects during the operation of the motor may be secured with the specific arrangement described hereinabove wherein the cooling air is caused to circulate in both directions through the conductor bars.

The construction described hereinabove permits building up the core with smooth finish laminations and undesirable effects caused by air ducts opening into the airgap may be avoided. And the arrangement is such, particularly by reason of the passage of the cooling air in contact with or inunediately adjacent the hotter parts of the core and windings, as provides a machine capable of operation under heavy load with a considerable. reduction in heat losses. Through the utilization of features of the present invention, there is attained a comparatively simple and inexpensive design and construction of ventilated core for electrical apparatus, and there may likewise be attained a comparatively simple and inexpensive design and construction of dynamoelectric machine, of particular utility as an induction motor, and one capable of operation under heavy load with minimum heat losses.

It should be understood that the invention claimed is not limited to the exact details of construction shown and described herein, for various modifications will occur to persons skilled in the art. and it is contem lated that the invention cover such mo ifications.
