Abstract

This paper reviews some of the electromagnetic design issues in a doubly-fed reluctance machine. This is a novel machine that is still under early-stage development. The control has been studied previously in several papers however the electromagnet design of this machine is now being studied with the key issue being whether to use an axially-laminated rotor or a radially-laminated rotor. This is discussed in the paper.
