Abstract

This paper compares the performance of Synchronous Reluctance Motors (SynRMs) using two different star-delta winding connections under normal operation. All the machine parameters are kept the same while the winding layout is only modified. The compared winding layouts differ in the combination between the number of coils of the star and delta winding sections. The two adopted windings are the only possible configurations that can give a high quality mangetomotive force (MMF) distribution. Experimental validation on a prototype SynRM with one winding is given, showing a good agreement with the theoretical findings.
