Design Optimization of a Double Stator Cup- Rotor Machine

Authors: E. Diryak, P. Lefley, L. Petkovska, G. Cvetkovski


This paper presents the optimum design for a double stator, cup rotor machine; a novel type of BLDC PM Machine. The optimization approach is divided into two stages: the first stage is calculating the machine configuration using Matlab, and the second stage is the optimization of the machine using Finite Element Modeling (FEM). Under the design specifications, the machine model will be selected from three pole numbers, namely, 8, 10 and 12 with an appropriate slot number. A double stator brushless DC permanent magnet machine is designed to achieve low cogging torque; high electromagnetic torque and low ripple torque.

Keywords: Design optimization, permanent magnet machine, low- cogging torque, low- ripple torque, high- electromagnetic torque
