Abstract

Axial Flux Permanent Magnet (AFPM) motors of two types, coreless and conventional topologies, have been studied in order to identify their merits and drawbacks at different ratings, particularly for in-wheel electric transportation applications. The performance of the coreless with several slotpole combinations and number of disks is evaluated. Design of experiments (DOE) methodology is utilized to determine the correlation between input variables and output parameters and the regression models are used to identify the optimum design. Detailed comparison between coreless and conventional topologies at two operating speeds at extreme ends of the driving cycle are conducted.
