Patent
Regal Beloit | Date: 2017-03-22

A blower (10) includes an impeller housing (18, 20), an impeller (12) rotatably secured to the housing and an electric motor (14). The motor has a motor housing (56) with a central portion (66) and a radially extending portion (64)extending from the central portion, a venturi chamber (809) adjacent the motor housing and opposed to the impeller housing, a stator (30) secured to the central portion of the motor housing, a rotor (32) rotatably secured to the central portion of the housing, and at least one heat generating electrical component (46) secured to the radially extending portion of the motor housing. The impeller housing has a first air pressure therein and the motor housing (56) has a second air pressure therein different that the first air pressure. The venturi housing and the motor housing define a passageway (883) therebetween whereby the difference in air pressure generates air flow within the motor housing to cool the at least one heat generating electrical component (46).

An electric machine comprises a motor housing and an electronics enclosure coupled to the motor housing. The electronics enclosure defines an air passage between the electronics enclosure and the motor housing. The electronics enclosure further defines at least one air intake connected to said air passage. The electric machine also includes a fan configured to draw air through the at least one air intake and into the air passage.


A method of controlling a liquid movement system, such as a pool system. The method includes receiving a maximum time that an auxiliary load is to operate, receiving a minimum pump speed of a pump system that pumps a liquid through the auxiliary load, monitoring the time that an auxiliary load has been in operation, monitoring the pump speed of a pump system that pumps a liquid through the auxiliary load, and deactivating the auxiliary load if the maximum time or minimum pump speed has been met. Also disclosed are a pool system and a controller for controlling the pool system.

A motor control system includes an inverter and a plurality of current sensors each positioned in-line between the inverter and a phase coil of the motor. Each current sensor measures the current provided to each phase coil of the motor and provides a signal indicative of each phase current to a controller. In some embodiments, the currents sensors are provided as one or more current sense integrated circuits. A protection circuit protects the current sense integrated circuit from ground bounce by coupling a diode and an opposite facing Zener diode in series between the power supply pin and the ground pin of the integrated circuit.

A fluid circulating assembly includes a fan impeller having an inlet ring and a rear plate that define a central chamber. The fluid circulating assembly includes an electrical machine having a rotor assembly, a stator assembly, and a housing. The electrical machine is coupled to the rear plate of the impeller such that the electrical machine is positioned entirely outside the central chamber. The housing includes a plurality of fins on a side of the housing opposite the rear plate. The fins extend axially away from the stator assembly. The assembly includes a duct attached to the housing. The duct covers a portion of the fins and extends radially outward from the housing towards an outer edge of the rear plate. The duct is configured to channel air over the portion of the fins to facilitate cooling the electrical machine.
