Abstract

With the warm and humid climate throughout the year in Malaysia, ceiling fan has become an important electrical appliance for the cooling purpose in each house. The mechanical rotation of the existing ceiling fan is not fully utilised where the wasted kinetic energy from the blade rotation can be captured and converted into electricity. The purpose of this project is to propose a novel design of the electrical machine for the ceiling fan which capable in generating electricity. In this study, a permanent magnet machine configuration is selected in designing the ceiling fan model. Permanent magnet is small and compact with a higher and constant flux density resulted in higher torque and back electromotive force (EMF). This unique characteristic has make the permanent magnet machine suitable for both motor and generator purposes. Various literature studies had been conducted to study the effect of different configuration and variable parameter of the permanent magnet machine such as the number of poles and slot, slot angle, winding configuration and slot design towards its performance. Two new designs of the ceiling fan were proposed which consists of motor and generator fused into one system where the generated electricity will be used to provide power supply for other suitable household appliances. The design model will then be simulated and analysed by using finite element software, Ansoft Maxwell. The results were focused on the flux distribution and the back EMF of the system where the design is further optimised as the continuous improvement to achieve the best configuration of the ceiling fan machine.
