Investigation of a novel hybrid radial and axial magnetic circuit permanent magnet motor with flux weakening capability for EVs

This paper investigates a novel hybrid axial- and radial-magnetic circuit permanent magnet synchronous machine with flux weakening capability. The presented machine consists of a solid rotor and two stators, i.e. radial stator and axial stator. The PMs are radially buried in the solid rotor so that the flux flows into both radial and axial stator. This… (More)
