Design of Brushless Permanent-magnet Machines

Front Cover
Brushless permanent-magnet motors provide simple, low maintenance, and easily controlled mechanical power. Written by two leading experts on the subject, this book offers the most comprehensive guide to the design and performance of brushless permanent-magnetic motors ever written. Topics range from electrical and magnetic design to materials and control. Throughout, the authors stress both practical and theoretical aspects of the subject, and relate the material to modern software-based techniques for design and analysis. As new magnetic materials and digital power control techniques continue to widen the scope of the applicability of such motors, the need for an authoritative overview of the subject becomes ever more urgent. Design of Brushless Permanent-Magnet Motors fits the bill and will be read by students and researchers in electric and electronic engineering.

This brand new 822-page brushless machine design book is generously illustrated in color as
the authors have tried to catch up with the progress over the last 16 years of PM brushless
machine design
and development since their well known 1994 book. Almost the entire work is
the direct result of intensive consulting by the authors, in collaborating with many of the leading
producers of brushless permanent-magnet machine products worldwide. Much of the theoretical
material has been evolved from SPEED’s Electric Machines, the theory text that accompanies
the SPEED PC-BDC software developed by Prof. Miller.
This book was written with a focus on actual engineering practice and tries to deal with most of
the questions that arise on a daily basis in PM brushless machine design. It is written for
practicing engineers, many of whom have used the 1994 book heavily. The book includes many
more examples than the 1994 book.
The authors’ partnership is a longstanding combination of theoretical, practical and consulting
experience, while the book with its rich illustrations of industrial products celebrates the rich
engineering accomplishments of design engineers from all over the world.
