Abstract

The paper presents a comparison of the magnetic field and magnetic characteristics of a PM disk motor with laminated magnetic stator open slot core, laminated magnetic stator closed slot core with soft magnetic composite and soft magnetic composite stator core. The data for this analysis is provided by a 2D FEM calculation of the magnetic field. After the proper modelling of the motor a calculation of the magnetic field for no load and current load is performed, for the three models. The results of the magnetic field distribution, air gap flux density distribution and the values of the magnetic and electric parameters for the three models are also presented.
