The foremost requirement of todays electric vehicle is comfort and power. The challenge that todays electric motor designer face is to have a large traction torque at low speed and wide constant power speed range. Flux switching machine has magnets parallel to stator winding that avoids the risk of demagnetisation because of better thermal cooling. Efficiency map of such machines can be determined efficiently from the response surface method using control algorithm, optimisation and finite element analysis.
