ABSTRACT: This paper presents the design of a ¾hp brushless DC motor used for in home applications. The designed motor is a three-phase, four-pole, twelve-slot machine. The paper covers all aspects of the design beginning with the type of motor and finishing with the production and shipping of the motor. It also includes the design options for control circuits, number of turns and types of winding. The final product meets most of the goals set by the IEEE project guidelines.

50, 21, 17, 14 STRONG, COX, CAREY, BELKNAP 4 INTRODUCTION Every day, electric motors become increasingly necessary in our advancing society. While only fifty years ago the average household possessed very few motors, the average home today could contain over a hundred. Motors today power everything from dishwashers and vacuum cleaners to computers and video game systems. Motors provide the driving force for so many things, and with such an enormous demand, the incentive to design and sell motors becomes unavoidable. This project aims to provide an inexpensive and economical solution to one of the most common residential motor applications, the ¾hp motor. The project also aims to decrease overall power consumption by providing an energy-efficient replacement for current ¾hp electric motors.
