A Synchronous Reluctance Motor (SynRM), which has sinusoidal rotor lamination shape in the axial direction, is proposed. The sinusoidal lamination shape is utilized to vary the magnetic flux in the qr-axis direction. Therefore, cancelling some torque harmonics produced by slotting effects. The stator geometry of a 1.5 kW, conventional three-phase squirrel… CONTINUE READING
