This paper presents a novel double salient motor design in which the permanent magnets are implanted in the stator to provide additional magnetic flux sources for enhancing its performance and reducing the inherent cogging torque. The feasible cones method is adopted to calculate the dimensional sizes of the proposed short flux path motor. The assembled stators concept is employed to design the magnetic flux paths of the double salient permanent magnet (DSPM) motor and also transfer the heat generated by the windings outside the motor. Due to the nonlinear properties of the doubly salient structure, this paper utilizes both magnetic circuit analysis and finite element analysis to evaluate different operating characteristics of the designed DSPM motor. Experimental data are provided to verify the proposed design.
