This article presents a new and powerful freeware software called MotorAnalysis-PM and discusses its application in electromagnetic design and analysis of permanent magnet (PM) motors for the electric vehicle (EV) industry. This new PM motor software utilizes both finite element (FE) and analytical methods to speed up the analysis and design process of PM motors significantly. The analysis and design methodology using MotorAnalysis-PM is presented and discussed for a 50 kW PM motor utilized in a commercial EV. To validate the accuracy of the software, the numerical results obtained from the PM motor design and analysis tool are compared with experimental results. The numerical and experimental results validate the flexibility of this software in achieving accurate motor design with short design times which is of great interest to EV and PM motor manufacturers.
