Due to the advantages such as high energy density, high power density, high cyclic life, and environmentally friendly, the flywheel battery has the potential to solve the problem of energy storage. In order to improve the torque density and suspension performance of bearingless synchronous permanent magnet (PM) synchronous motors (BPMSMs), a novel rotor structure with V-shaped PMs is designed in this paper. Furthermore, the interior BPMSM (IBPMSM) with V-shaped PM which used for flywheel batteries of electric vehicles is researched in detail. Especially, the influence of geometrical parameters of V-shaped PM on suspension force and electromagnetic torque is investigated. Moreover, the corresponding static electrical magnetic characteristics including inductances and electromagnetic torque are also studied. The finite-element method is employed to evaluate the theoretical analysis of the proposed IBPMSM. In addition, the optimized motor is validated to have good suspension performance by some experiments.
