Description

  The present invention relates to a rotating electrical machine that includes a stator having a stator coil and a motor case that holds the stator, and in which refrigerant flows inside the motor case during operation, and a rotating electrical machine cooling system.

  2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally known rotating electrical machines such as vehicle electric motors include a stator and a rotor. Further, conventionally, a stator as shown in FIG. 19 has been considered as a stator constituting a rotating electrical machine. FIG. 19 is a schematic perspective view of a first example of a stator conventionally considered. The stator 10 shown in FIG. 19 is provided with teeth 14 projecting in the radial direction at a plurality of locations in the circumferential direction of the inner circumferential surface of the stator core 12 made of laminated steel plates or the like, and the coils 16 are wound around the teeth 14 by concentrated winding. ing. Further, it is considered that the coil end body 18, which is a stator coil end, which is a coil portion protruding in the axial direction from both axial end surfaces of the stator core 12, is hardened by impregnating with varnish or dripping varnish. . The reason why the coil end body 18 is hardened in this way is to ensure the insulation between the coils 16 of each phase and to ensure the mechanical strength of the coil end body 18.

  In addition, attachment portions 20 for fixing the stator 10 to a motor case (not shown) are provided at a plurality of locations in the circumferential direction on the outer peripheral surface of the stator core 12. Although not shown in the figure, a lead wire connected to the coil 16 is led out from a part of the coil end body 18 so that the lead wire can be connected to an inverter (not shown), which is an external circuit. In FIG. 19, the coil 16 is wound around the teeth 14 by concentrated winding. However, it is also considered to perform distributed winding in which the coils 16 are wound so as to straddle a plurality of teeth 14.

  FIG. 20 is a schematic perspective view of a second example of a stator conventionally considered. A stator 22 shown in FIG. 20 is a pair of coil ends that protrude in the axial direction from both axial end surfaces of the stator core 12 at the axial ends of the coil 16 (see FIG. 19) wound around the teeth 14 (see FIG. 19). By embedding the main body 18 (see FIG. 19) with resin, that is, resin molding, a resin mold coil end 24 that is a pair of stator coil ends is formed. As described above, the reason why the stator coil end is the resin-molded coil end 24 is that the coil end main body is used in order to reduce the cost by automation at the time of manufacturing the rotating electric machine and when the stator coil end is cooled by cooling oil or the like. This is for improving the heat dissipation performance of the entire 18. Other configurations are the same as those of the first example of the stator shown in FIG.

  In both cases of the above-described configuration in which the coil end is hardened with varnish and the configuration in which the coil end is molded with resin, it has been conventionally considered to cool the stator coil with a coolant such as cooling oil. For example, Patent Document 1 discloses a motor generator cooling structure in which a stator core is disposed in a case in which both ends of a cylindrical plate are closed by side plates, and an annular space is provided between both axial ends of the stator core and the inside of the case. A structure is described in which an annular cooling space is formed by inserting cooling jackets each having a U-shaped cross section so as to form a circular shape. Each coil end is accommodated in a cooling jacket, and an oil supply port is provided in the bottom surface of the lower portion of the cooling jacket case through the case side plate. The cooling oil is connected to the coil end in the cooling jacket. It flows upward through the gap space. The outer peripheral wall provided in the upper part of the cooling jacket is provided with an oil discharge port provided through the case so that the cooling oil is discharged to the outside from the oil discharge port.

  Further, Patent Document 2 introduces a rotating electric machine that opens to a housing that accommodates a stator, a rotor, and a coil such that an opening on a cooling oil outlet side in a radial direction of the rotor faces a coil end of the coil. A structure is described in which a flow path mainly composed of a groove, an injection groove that opens to the outside of the housing, and a guide groove that connects the injection groove and the introduction groove is provided.

JP 2005-323416 A JP 2006-6047 A

  In the case of the motor generator cooling structure described in Patent Document 1, the direction in which the cooling oil flows is regulated in relation to the surface shape of the coil, such as a protrusion formed by the coil, on the surface of the coil end. Not. For this reason, as the cooling oil flows in the direction from the oil supply port, which is the cooling jacket inlet, to the oil discharge port, which is the outlet, the cooling oil is formed in the portion near the coil surface in the downstream portion. There is a possibility that a temperature boundary layer related to the flow velocity distribution of the gas will develop, and the heat transfer coefficient between the coil end and the cooling oil may decrease. For this reason, the cooling efficiency of the whole coil deteriorates, the coil end upper part becomes high temperature compared with the coil end lower part, and temperature nonuniformity may become large.

  In the case of the structure described in Patent Document 2, the flow direction of the cooling oil flowing on the coil surface is not restricted in relation to the surface shape of the coil such as a protrusion formed by the coil. The temperature boundary layer develops as it flows through the end surface, and the cooling efficiency of the entire coil may deteriorate.

  In addition, as shown in FIG. 20 above, it is conceivable to form a resin-molded coil end by resin-molding the coil end body. However, a coolant such as cooling oil is formed on the surface of the resin-molded coil end. If no measures are taken, the surface of the resin-molded coil end has a smooth surface shape on which no protrusion is formed. For this reason, a temperature boundary layer develops as cooling oil flows on the resin mold coil end surface, and the cooling efficiency of the whole coil may deteriorate.

A plurality of first holes 88 (see FIG. 2) are supplied into the pair of cooling jackets 64 through the refrigerant inlets 70 provided on the respective upper portions of the cooling jackets 64 and are supplied from the refrigerant delivery part 56 to the upper intermediate wall part 78. ) To be distributed to a plurality of upstream branch flow paths 58. The refrigerant that has flowed through each upstream branch flow path 58 joins in the intermediate flow path 60 and is sent so as to be distributed to the plurality of downstream branch flow paths 62 through the plurality of second hole portions 92 of the lower intermediate wall portion 80. After being merged at the refrigerant merge portion 94, the refrigerant is sent out toward the oil circulation path 44 through the refrigerant outlet 72 and the refrigerant outlet 52. When the cooling oil flows through the upstream branch flow path 58, the cooling oil flows in the radial direction orthogonal to the wiring direction of the wiring portion facing the upstream direction of the stator coil 32 and facing the circumferential direction of the stator coil 32. Cool 32. At this time, in order to supply a substantially uniform amount of cooling oil to each upstream branch flow path 58, the size of each first hole 88 of the upper intermediate wall 78 is set in the circumferential direction of the stator 28. The size of the first hole 88 is set differently, for example, appropriately set in consideration of the pressure of the cooling oil depending on the position. Further, the cooling oil flows in the radial direction orthogonal to the wiring direction of the wiring portion facing the circumferential direction of the stator coil 32 and facing the downstream branch flow channel 62 when flowing through the downstream branch flow channel 62, The stator coil 32 is cooled. Further, at this time, in order to supply a substantially uniform amount of cooling oil to each downstream branch flow path 62, the size of each second hole 92 of the lower intermediate wall 80 is also set in the circumferential direction of the stator 28. The size of the second hole 92 is set differently, for example, appropriately set in consideration of the pressure of the cooling oil depending on the position.

  According to the motor 26 and the rotating electrical machine cooling system 42, the cooling oil flowing through the plurality of branch passages 58 and 62 is arranged in a plurality of arrangements provided in the stator coil 32 facing the branch passages 58 and 62. It flows in a radial direction orthogonal to the wiring direction of the wiring portion of the stator coil 32 facing the branch flow paths 58 and 62, which is a direction orthogonal to the protruding portion 36. For this reason, regardless of the progress of the flow of the cooling oil in the internal refrigerant flow path 54, it is possible to suppress the development of the temperature boundary layer near the surface of the stator coil 32, and the thermal conductivity between the cooling oil and the stator coil 32. Can be high. This will be described in detail with reference to FIGS.

  FIG. 5 is a schematic cross-sectional view showing a state in which cooling oil flows in the same direction with respect to the wiring direction of the stator coil facing the flow path in a comparative example different from the present invention. FIG. 6 is a schematic cross-sectional view taken along the line DD in FIG. 5 and shows a flow velocity distribution of the cooling oil. FIG. 7 is a schematic cross-sectional view showing a state in which cooling oil flows in a direction orthogonal to the wiring direction of the stator coil facing the flow path in the present embodiment. FIG. 8 is a schematic EE cross-sectional view of FIG. FIG. 9 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of a portion F in FIG.

  5 and 6, the wiring direction of the stator coil 32 facing the flow path 96 is the left-right direction of FIGS. 5 and 6. In the comparative example shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, the cooling oil flows in the same direction as the wiring direction of the stator coil 32, that is, in the same direction as the direction of the protrusion 36 formed by the stator coil 32. In this case, as shown in FIG. 6, as the cooling oil flows, a temperature boundary layer 98 near the surface of the stator coil 32 develops toward the downstream side, and at a portion far away from the surface of the stator coil 32. The area where the speed decreases due to the influence of viscosity or the like is larger than that of the main flow portion 100 which is the flow of For this reason, the heat transfer efficiency between the cooling oil and the stator coil 32 decreases on the downstream side of the flow path 96, and the difference in the heat transfer coefficient of the cooling oil between the upstream side and the downstream side of the flow path 96 increases. There is room for improvement in terms of improving the cooling efficiency of the stator coil 32.

  On the other hand, in the case of the present embodiment shown in FIGS. 7 to 9, the wiring direction of the stator coil 32 facing the upstream branch flow path 58 or the downstream branch flow path 62 is as shown in FIGS.

In the present embodiment shown in FIGS. 7 to 9, the cooling oil is in a direction orthogonal to the wiring direction of the stator coil 32, that is, in a direction orthogonal to the direction of the protrusion 36 formed by the stator coil 32. Cooling oil flows. In this case, as shown in FIG. 9, since the protrusions 36 and the valleys 102 appear alternately near the surface of the stator coil 32 along the traveling direction of the cooling oil, the vertical direction appears near the surface of the stator coil 32. The vortex 104 is generated and the cooling oil flow is disturbed, which becomes a factor for inhibiting the development of the temperature boundary layer 98 (FIG. 8). For this reason, as shown by the arrow α in FIG. 9, the main flow portion 100 of the cooling oil flow approaches the surface side of the stator coil 32. For this reason, as shown in FIG. 8, it is possible to suppress the development of the temperature boundary layer 98 of the cooling oil flow not only on the upstream side of the upstream branch flow path 58 or the downstream branch flow path 62 but also on the downstream side. Therefore, the thermal conductivity between the cooling oil and the stator coil 32 can be kept high regardless of the progress of the flow of the cooling oil in the internal refrigerant flow path 54, and the cooling efficiency of the stator coil 32 can be improved.

  In the rotating electrical machine cooling system 42 of the present embodiment, the oil pump 48 is not provided, the cooling oil is simply supplied into the motor case 38 from the oil tank 46 provided above, and the cooling oil is gravity-induced in the motor case 38. It can be made to flow down by the action of.
