Abstract: The radial-radial flux compound-structure permanent-magnet synchronous machine (CS-PMSM), integrated by two concentrically arranged permanent-magnet electric machines, is an electromagnetic power-splitting device for hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). As the two electric machines share a rotor as structural and magnetic common part, their magnetic paths are coupled, leading to possible mutual magnetic-field interference and complex control. In this paper, a design method to ensure magnetic decoupling with minimum yoke thickness of the common rotor is investigated. A prototype machine is designed based on the proposed method, and the feasibility of magnetic decoupling and independent control is validated by experimental tests of mutual influence. The CS-PMSM is tested by a designed driving cycle, and functions to act as starter motor, generator and to help the internal combustion engine (ICE) operate at optimum efficiency are validated.
Keywords: compound-structure permanent-magnetic synchronous machine (CS-PMSM); function validation; hybrid electric vehicle; independent control; magnetic decoupling; radial-radial flux
