Updated material for 2019--This How-To course addresses the key state-of-the-art application-oriented design issues for BLDC, IPM and Surface AC magnet 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 BLDC, IPM, and all SMPM 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
power density, and torque per amp requirements. The similarities and differences of BLDC, IPM, and SMPM 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 BLDC, IPM, and SMPM AC machine design techniques to produce accurate and realistic design results based on a solid foundation of electrical, magnetic, mechanical, and thermal interactions.
