  • Ndisc (int) – Number of point to discretize the lines

Returns

S – Slot total surface [m**2]

Return type

float

get_is_stator()

Return True if the parent lamination is stator and False if is a rotor

Parameters

self (Slot) – A Slot object

Returns

is_stator – True if the Lamination is a stator and False if not

bool

get_Rbo()

Return the parent lamination bore radius

Parameters

self (Slot) – A Slot object

Returns

Rbo – The parent lamination bore radius [m]

Return type

float

get_surface()

Returns the surface delimiting the slot

Parameters

self (Slot) – A Slot object

Returns

surface – A SurfLine object representing the slot

Return type

SurfLine

get_surface_tooth()

Returns the surface delimiting the tooth (including yoke part)

Parameters

self (Slot) – A Slot object

Returns

surface – A SurfLine object representing the slot

Return type

SurfLine

is_outwards()

Return if the slot is outwards (on an external lamination) or inwards (on an internal lamination)

Parameters

self (Slot) – A Slot object

Returns

is_outwards – True if the Lamination is not internal and false if not

Return type

bool

plot(fig=None)

Plot the Slot in a matplotlib fig

Parameters
  • self (Slot) – A Slot object

  • fig – if None, open a new fig and plot, else add to the current one (Default value = None)

Returns

Return type

None
