This How-To course addresses the key state-of-the-art application-oriented design issues for BLDC, IPM and Surface magnet AC machines, and
PM-Assisted Synchronous Reluctance Machines. We use basic motor principles and years of
experience to increase understanding of designing permanent magnets into any BLDC, IPM, and SMPM machine design. Academic theory will
be reduced to practical results with calculation 'how-to', taking manufacturing constraints into account. Special emphasis will be on design
differences and new trends in PM AC motors without brush and commutators, including reduction of magnet cost, replacing rare earth magnets with ferrite magnets,
new analysis techniques and design options to achieve cost, efficiency, power density, and torque per amp requirements.
The similarities and differences of BLDC, IPM, SMPM and PmAsstSynRel AC machines, compared to induction machines and
wound-field synchronous machines, are discussed.
The primary goal of this course is to provide an up-to-date, practical foundation of PM AC machine design techniques that can be used with any PMAC machine design to produce accurate and realistic design results based on a solid foundation of electrical, magnetic, mechanical, and thermal interactions.
