Abstract

Axial Flux Permanent Magnet (AFPM) machines present a lot of advantages over their conventional counterparts. They are being developed for various applications ranging from consumer electronics to more electric aircrafts [1]. An AFPM machine employing Halbach array offers a number of attractive features over a standard AFPM machine. In this paper both machine topologies are studied comparatively and Magnetostatic 3D finite element analysis are presented focusing on the flux density in the air gap, mass and torque density.
