Brushless permanent-magnet motors provide simple, low maintenance, easily controlled motive power. New magnetic materials and digital power control techniques continue to widen the scope of their applications. Increasing automation is increasing demand. This book, written by two world leading experts, combines practical and academic experience to produce the most comprehensive and useful design manual for brushless PM motors ever. It will serve the modern computer-based generation of motor engineers in much the same way as the Electro-Craft Handbook served the previous generation on d.c. motors. The book goes hand-in-hand with modern software-based techniques for design and analysis. It covers all the topics of interest to the motor design engineer, and the system engineer, including electrical and magnetic design, materials, control, and many other topics. This book is intended for working engineers developing new electrical drives. This includes engineers in industry as well as postgraduate students and research assistants. University lecturers and undergraduates on electrical machinery courses.
