This paper presents a two-dimensional steady-state finite-element solver, incorporating mechanical motion, that calculates eddy-current losses in the rotors of permanent-magnet machines. A shooting-Newton method is used to determine the periodic solution of the electromagnetics. Computation of the shooting-Newton Jacobian is avoided by using a generalized minimum residual (GMRES) linear solver. This method is more computationally efficient than performing transient analysis until convergence. The solver can be used to compare the rotor losses of different design choices for a high-speed permanent-magnet machine. Results show that rotor losses can be reduced significantly by laminating the rotor backiron, segmenting the permanent-magnet poles, increasing the number of stator slots, and closing the stator slots.
