This paper shows that the split ratio of the stator inner diameter to the outer diameter has an influence on the airgap flux density, stator copper loss, thermal load, torque density and cost for interior permanent magnet synchronous motors (IPMSMs) applied in electric vehicles (EVs). This paper presents a simplified analytical method to study the optimization of the split ratio considering both the efficiency and cost. The validity of this method is verified by experiment on a 35kW prototype.Index Terms-Elec…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
