This paper presents an analytical method for the design of permanent-magnet (PM) traction-drive motors with emphasis on calculation of the magnet's volume and size. The method uses a set of formulas to properly size the magnets without the high effort of finite-element analysis (FEA). The formulas not only give optimized magnet sizes, but also provide quick solutions for the preliminary designs. The method can be used in the initial design stage to set up the base for FEA and optimization, as well as throughout the entire design and optimization process to validate a PM motor design. Numerical methods and experiments confirm the accuracy of the proposed method.
