Abstract

An electric machine includes a housing having an air intake, an air outlet, and defining an air passage therein. The air passage includes a first channel extending from the air intake in a radial direction and a second channel extending in the radial direction to the outlet. The electric machine further includes a motor assembly positioned within the housing that includes a shaft that rotates about a rotational axis that is generally perpendicular to the radial direction. The electric machine further includes an electronics assembly within the housing interior and a heat sink positioned at least partially within the air passage and thermally connected to the electronics assembly. Operation of the motor assembly draws an ambient airflow into the air passage in the radial direction through the air intake, directs the airflow along the heat sink, and exhausts the airflow through the air outlet in the radial direction.

The electric motor system includes a drive circuit configured to supply variable frequency current and a contactor configured to supply line frequency current, wherein the drive circuit includes a three-phase inverter and an H-bridge including two phases of the inverter. The electric motor system also includes an electric motor and a controller. The controller is configured to control the inverter to supply variable frequency current to the electric motor over a first duration and determine to control the drive circuit to transition from supplying variable frequency current to supplying line frequency current. The controller is also configured to determine a polarity of a sensed alternating current (AC) voltage, disable at least two switches of the H-bridge, and control the contactor to close, thereby preventing the contactor and the inverter from energizing the electric motor at the same time once the contactor is closed.

Abstract

A combustion air blower includes a blower housing, an impeller fan within the blower housing, and an embossment to restrict airflow from the combustion air blower. The blower housing has a discharge conduit defining a discharge passageway. The discharge conduit is adapted and configured to receive a baffle such that, when the baffle is received, the baffle extends inwardly into the discharge passageway from a first wall towards a second wall opposite the first wall. The baffle restricts airflow within the discharge passageway. The embossment is in the discharge passageway and in the second wall and extends towards the first wall such that the embossment restricts airflow within the discharge passageway. The embossment cooperates with a baffle to provide a reduced cross sectional area of the discharge passageway in comparison to an upstream portion.
