This paper quantitatively compares two emerging stator-permanent-magnet (PM) machines, namely, the doubly salient PM and the PM hybrid brushless types. Both of them are attractive for electric vehicles and wind power generation. For comparison, both machines adopt the outer-rotor 36/24-pole topology and are designed based on the same peripheral dimensions. By using the circuit-field-torque time-stepping finite element analysis (CFT-TS-FEM), both steady-state and transient performances of the two machines are critically compared.
