This paper proposes a novel polyphase multipole permanent magnet motor which possesses high power density, high efficiency and excellent controllability,yet can be produced by conventional fabrication technique. The basic operating principles, design features, performance analysis and control system are described. The experimental results of a 5 kW, 1500 rpm prototype motor and its comparison with other types of motors such as switched reluctance motor and induction motor are given. This proposed motor has the potential to compete in certain applications.
