    Description


    [0001] The present invention relates to a BLDC (Brushless Direct Current) electric motor of an electrical household appliance, in particular a hermetic refrigeration compressor which has a variable refrigeration capacity. The present invention more particularly relates to the inner magnet-rotor of the BLDC electric motor.

    [0002] Hermetic refrigeration compressors with variable refrigeration capacities which are used in the refrigeration appliances such as domestic refrigerators are commonly known in the art. The variable capacity hermetic refrigeration compressor generally comprises a BLDC electric motor which includes a stator, a shaft and an inner magnet-rotor. The inner magnet-rotor comprises a core which includes a plurality of slots for respectively receiving a plurality of permanent magnets and a bore for press-fittingly receiving the shaft. The inner magnet-rotor further comprises a plurality of permanent magnets that are respectively mounted into the plurality of slots.

    [0003]  JPH02119544(A), DE 10 2010 039 334 A1, and WO 2012/022731 A2 disclose an inner magnet-rotor with permanent magnets.

    [0004] A common problem with the aforementioned prior art inner magnet-motor is that the adjacent permanent magnets interact with each other during the assembly and become dislodged from their positions inside the slots. Particularly, in fully-automated production lines such incidents may give rise to manufacturing errors or other complications and may even cause the production line to halt. The dislodged permanent magnets generally reduce the quality of the bldc electric motor. In addition, there are incidents where the dislodged permanent magnets get stuck in the injection mold and cause the injection mold to receive damages. Moreover, reinserting or correcting the dislodged permanent magnets requires manual operation through the assembly operator, which however prolongs the production cycle.

    [0005] An objective of the present invention is to provide a magnet retaining system for use in a BLDC electric motor which solves the aforementioned problems of the prior art in a cost effective way and which enables an improved production, an improved assemblage and a reliable operation of the BLDC electric motor.

    [0006] This objective has been achieved by the magnet retaining system as defined in claim 1, the bldc electric motor as defined in claim 4 and the electrical household appliance as defined in claim 8. Further achievements have been attained by the subject-matters respectively defined in the dependent claims.

    [0007] The magnet retainer of the present invention comprises a main body which is adapted for installation onto the core and a plurality of outer legs each disposed onto the main body and each adapted to be inserted into the respective slot, to resiliently press the respective permanent magnet radially outwards and to clamp the respective permanent magnet within the slot.

    [0008] A major advantageous effect of the present invention is that permanent magnets can be securely maintained in their places within the slots throughout the automated production line and thus the risk of suffering any complications such as halting of the automated production line can be eliminated or reduced as much as possible. Thereby, the occurrence of any manufacturing errors and damaged injection molds can be eliminated or reduced as much as possible and thus the quality of the bldc electric motor can be increased. Thereby, also the amount of the manual operation can be decreased and thus the production cycle can be shortened and the production costs can be reduced. Another major advantageous effect of the present invention is that the need for using any adhesive so as to secure the permanent magnets in place within the slots has been obviated by virtue of the magnet retainer. Thereby, the production line can be protected from getting soiled through the adhesive and the production costs can be further reduced. Another major advantageous effect of the present invention is that the bldc electric motor can be more reliably operated event at comparatively higher ambient temperatures and rotational speeds by virtue of the magnet retainer. Another major advantageous effect of the present invention is that the price-performance ratio of the bldc electric motor can be improved by increasing the height of the permanent magnets relative to the height of the core without compromising the stability of the permanent magnets within the slots by virtue of the magnet retainer.

    [0009] According to the invention the outer legs of the magnet retainer engage with the respective permanent magnets in addition to the clamping force through a releasable form-fitting connection. This releasable form-fitting connection may be provided in various forms such as projecting parts and recessed parts. According to the invention the projecting part is provided as a nose whereas the recessed part is provided as an indent. The nose is formed onto the outer leg. Accordingly, the indent is formed onto the permanent magnet. This is particularly advantageous as the permanent magnets can be more securely kept in their places.

    [0010] In other alternative embodiments, the magnet retainer is installed onto the core through a bonding attachment or alternatively through a releasable force-fitting attachment and/or a releasable form-fitting attachment. This releasable force-fitting attachment may be provided in various forms such as a clamping attachment. In another embodiment, the magnet retainer has inner legs which are each disposed onto the main body and which can be inserted into the bore and clamped between the core and the shaft. In addition, the releasable form-fitting attachment may also be provided in various forms such as such as projecting sections and recessed sections. In another embodiment, the recessed sections are provided as recesses which are formed into the inner surface of the bore whereas the projecting sections are defined through the facing sides of the inner legs. These embodiments are particularly advantageous as the magnet retainer can be securely installed onto the core.

    [0011] In other alternative embodiments, the height of the core is equal to or less than a predetermined factor times the height of the permanent magnet. The predetermined factor is equal to or smaller than one. In another embodiment the predetermined factor is about 0.8. This embodiment is particularly advantageous as the price/performance ratio can be improved. In this embodiment, the magnet retainer can securely keep the permanent magnets in their places within the slots even when the permanent magnets are higher than the core.

    [0012] In another embodiment, the inner magnet-rotor is concealed with an overmolded cover through plastic injection molding. This embodiment is particularly advantageous as the inner magnet-rotor can be protected from ambient conditions.

    [0013] In another embodiment, the magnet retainer is produced as a single piece from a non-magnetic material, preferably from plastic. This embodiment is particularly advantageous as the magnet retainer can be easily assembled with the inner-magnet rotor. Of course, the magnet retainer may be produced in two or more pieces which can be attached or bonded with each other.

    [0014] In another embodiment, the overmolded cover and the magnet retainer are made from the same plastic material. This embodiment is particularly advantageous as the injection molding can be conducted smoothly.

    [0015] In other alternative embodiments, the magnet retainer is used in an inner magnet-rotor or an outer-magnet-rotor of a corresponding bldc electric motor. The bldc electric motor of the present invention may be used in various electrical appliances, in particular in various electrical household appliances.

    [0016] Additional features and additional advantageous effects of the magnet retainer and the bldc electric motor of the present invention will become more apparent with the detailed description of the embodiments with reference to the accompanying drawings in which:

Thereby, the occurrence of any manufacturing errors and damaged injection molds can be eliminated or reduced as much as possible and thus the quality of the bldc electric motor (2) can be increased. Thereby, also the amount of manual operation can be decreased and thus the production cycle can be shortened and the production costs can be reduced. Another major advantageous effect of the present invention is that the need for using any adhesive so as to secure the permanent magnets (7) in place within the slots (6) has been obviated by virtue of the magnet retainer (1). Thereby, the production line can be protected from getting soiled through the adhesive and the production costs can be further reduced. Another major advantageous effect of the present invention is that the bldc electric motor (2) can be more reliably operated event at comparatively higher ambient temperatures and rotational speeds by virtue of the magnet retainer (1). Another major advantageous effect of the present invention is that the price-performance ratio of the bldc electric motor (2) can be improved by increasing the height (H2) of the permanent magnets (7) relative to the height (H1) of the core (5) without compromising the stability of the permanent magnets (7) within the slots (6) by virtue of the magnet retainer (1). Other advantageous effects of the present invention can be taken from the above described embodiments.
