A thermofluid model combining a lumped parameter heat transfer model and an air-flow model of a typical axial-field permanent-magnet (AFPM) machine is developed. The accuracy and consistency of the derived model are assessed by comparing the calculated flow rate and temperature values of a prototype machine with the measured ones. The developed thermofluid model is shown to perform thermal calculations with reasonable accuracy.
