This paper presents an examination of the advantages, disadvantages and remaining challenges of the application of fractional slot concentrated windings to higher pole number (pole-pairs > 2) synchronous reluctance machines. It extends previous work by assessing the effects of the available slotpole combinations on machine performance and construction. Finite element studies and figures of merit derived from d-q axis theory are used to compare and assess performance. Manufacturing and constructional issues are also discussed.
Conference date: 8-10 April 2014
