—This paper presents a position-sensorless vector torque controller designed to achieve maximum efficiency over a range of power and rotational speed for a synchronous reluctance machine. A model of the synchronous reluctance machine is presented which incorporates both winding and core losses. It is then shown that a stator-flux-oriented control scheme can… (More)
In this paper, a new design concept of a PM machine for flux weakening operation is proposed. The feasibility of strong flux weakening capability without permanently demagnetizing the permanent magnet is investigated. Results from the finite element analysis on the proposed PM machine structure are presented to verify the new design concept.
