Sine Profiling of Air-Gap Flux Density in Axial Flux PMSM

Ms. Ankita Sharma


This Paper presents the sine profiling of high-power axial flux Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor. Sinusoidal wave-shaping of magnets is required in axial flux machines to minimize cogging torque and noise. Analytical calculations are done to achieve sinusoidal EMF in axial flux machine.
