This paper details the design considerations of a permanent-magnet three-phase synchronous machine for fault-tolerant operation. A multidisciplinary approach to the optimal design of the machine is adopted, targeted at minimizing the additional losses resulting from faulty operating conditions and accounting for the remedial control strategy implemented. The design of a closed-slot six-slot four-pole machine is presented. The machine is prototyped and tested to validate the analytical-computational performances predicted in the design and analysis stage under healthy and faulty conditions.
