Multi-phase permanent magnet (PM) motors are becoming more popular because of their higher torque densities, enhanced efficiency, and fault-tolerant capabilities. In this paper, a novel six-phase PM synchronous motor with a new asymmetric stator ac winding scheme and placement is proposed. Two identical dual three-phase asymmetrical winding sets are placed in two separate half of the stator in 180 mechanical degrees. This approach reduces the phase resistance and thus copper losses. Torque quality of the proposed motor is also analyzed using 2-D finite element method in detail. It can be concluded that the proposed novel asymmetric stator has more advantages to offer than conventional six-phase PM motors.
