How to set-up a squirrel cage?

To simulate a Squirrel Cage Induction Machine, one need to select the corresponding machine type :
Input.Magnetics.type_machine = 1;

For the bar one must set :

Finally to set the short-circuit ring, one need to set the following variables according to this schematics :

Squirrel cage short circuit ring schematics
Squirrel cage short circuit ring schematics

On the schematics, the symmetry axis correspond to the machine axis. Drbo is the rotor bore diameter (it’s an Output)

Input.Geometry.Lrewout   =  17e-3;  % length of rotor bars out of rotor stack, short-circuit ring excluded [m]
Input.Geometry.Hscr    =  20e-3;  % short circuit ring section radial height [m]
Input.Geometry.Lscr    =  15e-3;   % short circuit ring section axial length [m]
