Different costs effective and high efficiency methods for improving the main performances of tooth concentrated windings are presented. Using these simple techniques, the sub- and high winding space harmonics clearly can be reduced. Different PM machines for steering and also for hybrid electric vehicle and battery electric vehicle applications are designed and analysed. The investigated PM machines show good performances.
