Abstract

This paper proposes a partitioned stator variable flux reluctance machine (PS-VFRM) in which field and armature windings are placed on two separate stators. The influence of different stator/rotor-pole combinations on the electromagnetic performance is examined using finite-element analysis. Candidate designs maximize the average electromagnetic torque. Compared against the conventional single stator VFRM, the proposed PS-VFRM is shown to provide 24.6% and 12.7% increases in torque density and efficiency, respectively. The static electromagnetic performance is validated using experimental prototypes.
