Presentation Summary

There are a number of different motor architectures currently in use for hybrid and electric vehicles. These include rare earth permanent magnet as well as non permanent magnet motors such as induction motors. Whilst there is a lot of research around finding a motor solution which does not require expensive rare earth magnets, these motors currently offer the highest specific performance. This presentation shows an analysis of a spoke type interior permanent magnet motor, which offers a reduction of 25% in the magnetic material required compared with conventional interior permanent magnet motors. The presentation also shows a design route to mass manufacture
