Abstract: This paper compares the field-weakening performance under rated and overload conditions of synchronous reluctance and interior permanent-magnet motors against that of a baseline 2.2-kW induction machine. Four prototype rotors based on axially laminated and multiple-barrier designs were built and tested in the same induction machine stator. Field-weakening performance was estimated based on 50-Hz load tests at reduced voltage. It was found that the performance of the axially laminated synchronous reluctance machine was comparable with the induction machine while the interior permanent-magnet motors offered significantly better output power above rated speed. The multiple-barrier interior permanent-magnet motor design gave the most promising field-weakening performance.
