In this paper, the suitability of a class of electric machines for vehicle traction applications is discussed. These machines, which are known as hybrid excitation synchronous machines, combine permanent-magnet (PM) excitation with wound field excitation. The goal behind the principle of hybrid excitation is to combine the advantages of PM excited machines and wound field synchronous machines. It is shown that these machines have good flux weakening capability compared with PM machines, and that they constitute an energy-efficient solution for vehicle propulsion.
