Abstract

Mechanically-driven actuators, compressors and pumps are being replaced by the aircraft manufacturers that shift the trend towards 'More Electric Aircraft' and hence reducing the mechanical linkages within the aircraft system. This elevates the dependence of the electrical power on the main engine, deicing and cabin environmental system which originates from the starter-generator. This paper presents a trade-off study for the design of high-performance starter-generator, surface-mounted permanent magnet machines, considering slot-pole combination, winding configuration and geometrical layout as degrees of freedom while satisfying the output power and strict volume requirements. 18S/12P combination seems a promising candidate for starter generator application which satisfy all the given requirements, giving the output power of 32kW at 14kRPM within the volume of 1407cm3
