Analytical Model of Permeance Variation Losses in Permanent Magnets of the Multipole Synchronous Machine


Permeance variation in the air gap of the permanent-magnet synchronous machine induces eddy-current losses in its permanent magnets even in the absence of stator currents. This paper proposes a new analytical approach to analyze these losses using the permeance-variation vector function introduced for the air-gap magnetic-flux density distribution to take into account the stator teeth.
