Abstract

Slotless permanent magnet machines are attractive in some modern drive and power generation fields, where the cogging torque and additional losses need to be minimized or removed. The stator slotless design can be combined with different surface permanent magnet (SPM) rotor topologies. In this paper, explicit analytical expressions are derived to analytically compute the slotless machine torque and no-load back Electro-Motive Force in the case of segmented SPM rotor with parallel, radial, or Halbach-array magnetization patterns. The expressions are found by solving the magnetic field due to the slotless stator winding and to the permanent magnet blocks; the latter modeled through equivalent surface current densities. The accuracy of the method is successfully assessed by comparison with the finite-element analys is (FEA). The proposed formulas are an effective alternative to the FEA to quickly compare different design solutions as well as to optimize them. Application examples are provided in which the presented method is adopted to define the machine cross section that maximizes the torque density.
