To propose trigonometric interpolation in combination with both sliding‐surface and moving‐band techniques for modelling rotation in finite‐element electrical machine models. To show that trigonometric interpolation is at least as accurate and efficient as standard stator‐rotor coupling schemes.
Trigonometric interpolation is explained concisely and put in a historical perspective. Characteristic drawbacks of trigonometric interpolation are alleviated one by one. A comparison with the more common locked‐step linear‐interpolation and mortar‐element approaches is carried out.
Trigonometric interpolation offers a higher accuracy and therefore can outperform standard stator‐rotor coupling techniques when equipped with an appropriate iterative solver incorporating Fast Fourier Transforms to reduce the higher computational cost.
The synthetic interpretation of trigonometric interpolation as a spectral‐element approach in the machine's air gap, the efficient iterative solver combining conjugate gradients with Fast Fourier Transforms. The unified application to both sliding‐surface and moving‐band techniques.
