Abstract
In this article, a forward uncertainty propagation method is presented for a 2-D finite-element (FE) model in an induction machine. This method is applied to quantify the uncertainty of input parameters, for example, dimensions and material properties, and demonstrate their variability effect on harmonics related to the broken rotor bar (BRB) faults. To show the most influential input parameters in the case of BRB harmonics, a global sensitivity analysis is performed from the polynomial chaos expansion (PCE) approximation of the FE model. The results of this study indicate that BRB harmonics are highly sensitive to stator inner diameter, rotor outer diameter, rotor bar conductivity, and core materials. Moreover, the combined variability of these sensitive input parameters can attenuate the amplitude of the BRB harmonics 30%-90% compared to the simulation results at nominal values of input parameters and closely match with measurement results.
