Rotor eddy-current loss in permanent magnet brushless machines \ud

By H. Toda, Z.P. Xia, J.B. Wang, K. Atallah and D. Howe


This paper presents an analysis of the rotor eddy-current loss in modular and conventional topologies of permanent magnet brushless machine. The loss is evaluated both analytically and by time-stepped finite-element analysis, and it is shown that it can be significant in both machine topologies. It is also shown that the loss can be reduced significantly by segmenting the magnets
