Natural Variable Modeling and Performance of Interior Permanent Magnet Motor with Concentrated and Distributed Windings

Abstract Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) motor is widely used for many industrial applications and has relatively high torque ripple generated by reluctance torque. Since the configuration of the stator has great influence on reluctance torque, different stator configuration is necessary to improve the torque performance of IPM motor. Natural variable modeling and performance comparison of […]
