Permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) possess many good characteristics, such as high efficiency and high torque density. In this study, a design assist system is proposed for PMSMs. This system uses motor parameters and a magnetic equivalent circuit to design a PMSM that satisfies the demanded output characteristics. This paper describes the outline of the design assist system. The system is applied to the design of surface permanent magnet synchronous motors (SPMSMs) and the effectiveness of the proposed system is confirmed.
