Submersible electrical motor

The European project was aimed to develop a *6 inches, high efficiency squirrel cage submersible asynchronous motor*, designed for *45 kW* (50% higher than the maximum rating power of the motors manufactured by the industrial proposer of the project) to be used in connection with pumps within 6 inches wells, improving at the same time characteristics of reliability, environmental compatibility and reduced maintenance which are even more important for systems operating at high depths.
The project started on June 2002 was concluded successfully in 2004 by testing a prototype of the motor with positive results. Finite element magnetic and thermal analysis, combined with an optimization procedure were used to design the motor in cooperation with mechanical designers.
