Abstract

The application of permanent magnet free motors have gained a huge attention for pure electric and hybrid electric vehicles. This paper proposed the design of 20-kW switched reluctance motor having 18 stator poles and 12 rotor poles by using finite element analysis machine design software Infolytica magnet and the main focus is to achieve the high speed, torque with adequate performance for electric vehicles. The asymmetric bridge converter has been used and the series of varying the excitation voltage, slot fill factor with respect to the number of turns and stranded area of the conductor has been analysed. Additionally, in order to the electromagnetic force vector, the switching sequence is examined. The simulation results show the great potential of the suggested motor and can provide a good starting torque with high speed and can be suitable to achieve the freedom Car 2020 electric vehicle target.
