Abstract: High energy-efficient permanent magnet synchronous machines (PMSMs) with low manufacturing costs and easy controllability are in high demand for the automotive and aerospace industries and in explosive environments (hazardous areas) like mines and the petrochemical industries. In explosive environments, the high surface temperature of PMSMs, due to magnetic losses and the irreversible demagnetisation of permanent magnets (PMs), could be a source of ignition leading to explosions. Therefore, this paper presents magnetic losses of a PMSM, which will help engineers to design robust machines with a high tolerance to explosive environments. Analytical calculations and finite element method (FEM) simulations of the magnetic losses of a PMSM are presented and compared with measured values from testing a PMSM.
