Introduction
The permanentmagnetassisted reluctance synchronous machine (PMRSM), also called the interior
permanent magnet (IPM) synchronous machine, with high magnetic saliency was proven to be compet

3 to 4 is required.
The cost comparisons show the PMRSM starter alternator system, including power electronics control,
to be notably less expensive than the surface PM synchronous machine or switched reluctance machine
system at the same output. It is comparable with the cost of the induction machine system. In terms of
itive, pricewise (

total machine plus power electronics losses, the PMRSM is slightly superior even to the surface PM
synchronous machine (Figure 8.2), and notably superior to the induction machine system, all designed
for the same machine volume, at 30 kW [2].
It was also demonstrated that PMRSM [2] is capable of a notably larger constant power speed range
than the surface PM synchronous, or the induction, or the switched reluctance machine of the same volume.
In essence, both the lower cost and the wide constant power speed range are explained by the combined
action of PMs and the high magnetic saliency torque to reduce the peak current for peak torque at low
speed and reduce ﬂux/torque at high speeds.

3 to 4 and up to 12 to 1. The higher the interval (without notably oversizing the machine or
the converter) constant power speed range, the better.
This is how the PMRSM becomes a tough competitor for electric hybrid vehicles (EHVs). The larger

is, the smaller the PM contribution to torque.

and direct torque and ﬂux control (DTFC) with and without position control feedback.
