Switched reluctance machines (SRMs) have been extensively researched for high performance aerospace applications because of their inherent fault tolerance. Recent work by the authors suggests that with careful design a similar degree of fault tolerance may be achieved with a permanent magnet machine (PM) at a significantly higher torque density than its SRM counterpart. This latter suggestion is of crucial importance in high performance applications, such as aerospace, where a low mass is essential. This paper is concerned with reporting measured results from a fault tolerant PM machine, and using these results to examine the relative merits of SR and PM technology for this application
