Axial Flux Permanent Magnet (AFPM) brushless machines are modern electrical machines with a lot of advantageous merits over their conventional counterparts. They are increasingly used in power generation, domestic appliances, industrial drives, electric vehicles, and marine propulsion drives and many other applications. This book deals with the analysis, construction, design, optimisation, control and applications of AFPM machines. The authors present their own research results, as well as significant research contributions made by others. This monograph will be of interest to electrical engineers and other engineers involved in the design and application of AFPM brushless machine drives. It will be an important resource for researchers and graduate students in the field of electrical machine and drives.
