This paper deals with the modeling of a novel permanent magnet (PM) pole shape for a surface-mounted permanent magnet (SPM) motor so as to generate sinusoidal back EMF and linear electromagnetic torque. Conventional SPM motors have a square-shaped PM pole structure; therefore, square back EMF is generated along with the torque pulsations. This novel SPM motor has sinusoidal PM pole shape in the axial direction; therefore, sinusoidal back EMF is generated due to the sinusoidal magnetic flux distribution. Sinusoidal back EMF eliminates most of the cogging torque; thus, a linear electromagnetic torque is generated. Square and sinusoidal current excitation is provided as to analyze the electromagnetic torque characteristics of SPM motor models. As compared to square current excitation, sinusoidal current excitation shows better linearity as well as average electromagnetic torque for the novel SPM motor model. 3-D finite element analysis (FEA) is utilized to analyze and compare the back EMF, cogging torque, and electromagnetic torque of conventional and proposed novel PM pole shaped SPM motor models for both square and sinusoidal current excitation.
