In this paper, an automatic design method for PMSM from the only required output characteristics is proposed. In this method, all motor mechanical parameters to realize minimum volume which satisfies a maximum torque, speed, power and losses inputted by user are obtained via control parameters, inductance and magnetic flux. This paper clarified the relationship between an inductance and the motor mechanical parameters, and all mechanical parameters are expressed as a function of the rotor diameter. The output characteristics from the obtained motor mechanical parameters are confirmed by a numerical simulation and Finite Element Method.
