Permanent magnet (PM) synchronous motors have replaced the induction motors in recent years. Development of permanent magnet synchronous motors has gained a lot of importance due to the benefits they can provide. It is important to increase the efficiency and minimize losses in permanent magnet synchronous motors. With the development of the motor technology, motor costs are expected to decrease while efficiency is increased. In this study, a conventional permanent magnet synchronous motor is designed and manufactured with a non-oriented magnetic material. An oriented silicon steel material is then utilized, analyzed and tested. The analysis and test results of the two motors are examined comparatively. As a result of the investigations, it was observed that the motor with oriented steel material have higher torque and power density with respect to the conventional PM motor.
