Abstract

The demand for high performance electrical machines that combine high power density (kW/kg or kW/L), light - weighting and high efficiency have become more and more important in recent years. In these machines, mitigation of the parasitic losses associated with high - frequencies such as skin and proximity effect losses and circulating current losses due to flux leakage into slot become vital. This paper presents a methodology for selecting optimum magnet wire size and the slot winding height for minimum total loss (DC, Skin and Proximity, and Circulating current losses) in the concentrated winding of an interior permanent magnet machine using Finite-Elememt approach.
