SMC (soft magnetic composite) materials and SMC electrical machines have undergone significant development in the past decade. For the molding of the SMC core, if a high productivity low pressure press is used, the manufacturing cost can be dramatically reduced. However, the magnetic properties of the SMC core and the machine performance are highly dependant on the mass density of the core. This paper presents the development of a claw pole permanent magnet motor with a low mass density SMC stator core molded at low pressure which can replace the existing single phase induction motor in a dish washer pump. The developed SMC motor has been prototyped and tested. Both the parameter computation and performance prediction are validated by the experimental results. These show that the low mass density SMC core is suitable for low cost mass production of SMC electrical machines. © 2009 IEEE.
