The stator-PM brushless machines employ both permanent magnets (PMs) and armature windings in stator, and the rotor is only made of salient iron laminations. Hence, this type of machine has attracted considerable interests due to the advantages of brushless, simple and robust structure, high torque (power) density, strong anti-demagnetization capability, high efficiency, and flexible topologies. In this presentation, an overview of stator-PM brushless machines, including basic topology, operation principle, performance analysis, and control strategies, especially for the potential applications.
