An optimal stator design technique of a three-phase doubly salient permanent magnet generator (DSPMG) for improving the soutput power is proposed. The stator configuration was optimally designed by adjusting the stator pole depth and stator pole arc. The trapezoid outer stator tip was also designed. Then, the output characteristics of the designed DSPMG including the flux linkage, electromotive force (EMF), harmonic, cogging torque, efficiency, magnetic flux distribution and voltage regulation were characterized by using the finite element method. Results were compared to the original structure in the literature. It was found that the flux linkage, EMF, cogging torque, and efficiency of the proposed DSPMG were significantly improved after the stator pole depth and stator pole arc were suitably modified. Further details of optimal stator pole depth and stator pole arc are presented. The EMF produced by the optimal proposed structure was 47% higher than that of the conventional structure, while 56% cogging torque improvement and 20% increased efficiency were achieved. The EMF generated by the proposed structure was classified in the high-range scale compared to the other existing models. The symmetrical magnetic flux distribution of all structures was indicated. The voltage regulation of the modified structure was also significantly improved from the conventional model. The proposed design technique can be utilized to maximize the electromagnetic performance of this particular generator type.
