    Abstract: In the process of electric motor design, it is essential to predict and provide an accurate
    thermal and mechanical model. The aim of this research is to improve the thermal and mechanical
    performance—which is implemented into a 72/48 switched reluctance motor (SRM) with 75 kW—of
    a low-speed direct-drive mining system (pulverizer). Thermal analysis of the SRM requires a deep
    understanding of the coolant behavior and the thermal mechanism in the motor. Computational fluid
    dynamics (CFD) based finite element analysis (FEA) was carried out in order to precisely visualize
    and estimate fluid state and temperature distribution inside the motor. Several different coolant
    configurations were carried out, with the purpose of determining an appropriate one for uniform
    temperature distribution in the SRM. The natural frequencies are presented with the developed
    finite element mechanical, structural model. To adapt in the mining application, the cooling
    jacket configurations with 17 channels and the shaft with spoke was found to be optimal for the
    SRM, which may raise the natural frequency and reduce the weight and temperature of the motor.
    The simulations results showed a good agreement with experimental results regarding temperature
    distribution within the motor.

    Conclusions
    A thermal and mechanical analysis of the switched reluctance motor (SRM) for mining
    applications was discussed in this paper. Several case studies of water jacket configurations were
    carried out to determine an appropriate method for ensuring uniform temperature distribution in the
    proposed model. A 2D finite element model for the SRM was developed to obtain the losses and radial
    force. The cooling jacket configurations with 17 channels at a flow rate of 0.6 L/s were found to be
    optimal for a 75 kW, 72/48 SRM. The simulation results showed that the highest temperature point
    was 77.5 ◦C, located inside the SRM stator winding ends. The natural frequencies were calculated
    with the developed finite element mechanical, structural model. The 3D geometry of the SRM was
    modeled to obtain the vibration characteristics of the motor under free vibration for modal analysis,
    as well as the forced vibration response as radial forces for harmonic analysis. The structure of the
    shaft with a spoke was proposed for a 72/48 SRM; the advantages of the structure caused the natural
    frequency to rise and reduced the weight and temperature of the SRM prototype. The experimental
    and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) results were compared and analyzed. The simulation results
    were in close agreement with the experimental results and the accuracy of the simulation results was proved.
