During the design of permanent magnet synchronous machines (PMSM), the first step that engineers have to do, concern the choice of the topology, i.e. the slot/pole combination. Given that the performances of the machines are strongly related to this combination, the choice has to be fully justified. Fractional slots (FS)-PMSM offers several advantages and have been focused by a lot of researches. However, depending on the topology, these machines could have major drawbacks as magnetic noises, high iron and eddy-current losses and low fault-tolerance. The aim of this paper is to give an overview of each machine considering the most common slot/pole combination in order to single out if a topology is suitable or not. A special focus is also done on the homopolar component which traduces the machine's fault tolerant capability required for embedded applications.

In this paper, various inverter topologies are compared for integrated modular motor drive (IMMD) applications. Two-level voltage source inverter (2L-VSI), three level voltage source inverter (3L-VSI) and series/parallel combinations of these topologies with system level modularity are compared in terms of voltage and current harmonic spectrum, passive component sizes and motor drive efficiency. New generation wide band-gap GaN power semiconductor devices are utilized in modular topologies and they are comp...

In this study, design procedure of an Integrated Modular Motor Drive (IMMD) is presented focusing on high power density. The design is based on a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) and GaN FETs. Fractional slot concentrated windings are used on the stator. Slot/pole combination and winding configuration is selected based on having low cogging torque and high winding factor. An extended motor drive inverter topology is proposed where 2-level voltage source inverters are connected both in series and pa...

Analysis and Fault Tolerant Control of a Five-Phase Axial Flux Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine
Bayazıt, Göksenin Hande; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-9-06)
This study investigates the fault-tolerance capability of an air-cored, axial flux, five-phase permanent magnet synchronous machine. The air-cored stator is designed by adopting a novel winding topology that is called flat winding. The coils of flat winding are made by bending and grouping one within another of the flat wires made of a laser-cut thin aluminum sheet. This topology provides superior current ratings, better cooling performance, and a robust structure for the stator. As the coils are covered w...
