This lesson covers the intricate details of stator core design and geometry in electrical machines. It delves into the selection of slot shapes, the constraints to consider during this selection, and the calculation of slot geometry. The lesson also explains the importance of maintaining a symmetrical air gap, the impact of slot harmonics, and the role of slot fill factor. For instance, it uses the example of an induction machine to illustrate the need for a symmetrical air gap. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the verification of slot geometry and the calculation of the number of laminations required.

- The selection of slot shapes in stator core design is influenced by factors such as cost, type of winding, design complexity, uniform air gap length, and slot harmonics.
- Maintaining a symmetrical air gap is crucial in certain machines like induction and synchronous machines.
- Slot harmonics, which are variations in reluctance, can affect the flux density waveform.
- The slot fill factor, which is the ratio of the area of copper to the total area of the slot, generally ranges between 0.6 and 0.8.
- The verification of slot geometry and calculation of the number of laminations are essential final steps in stator core design.
