The proper combination of stator and rotor slot numbers is pursued in the design of interior permanent-magnet (IPM) motors with wide constant-power speed range. At high speed, in the flux-weakening region, the arising of stator and rotor iron losses due to magnetomotive-force (MMF) spatial harmonics limits the IPM motor performance. Torque ripple is another problem for this kind of machines, both at low and high speed. The numbers of stator slots and rotor equivalent slots have a major impact on both the loss and ripple aspects. A simplified model is proposed here in order to evaluate both problems with a general approach and point out the possible design tradeoff. With respect to previous models in the literature, both stator and rotor losses are included, and a more comprehensive approach is followed in the description of the rotor MMF harmonics. The model's effectiveness is tested through finite element analysis simulations and some experimental results. The proposed approach is useful for the selection of the IPM machine structure according to the specific requirements of the application.
