This paper addresses the design of motors for electric motorcycle racing. These tend to be high torque-dense brushless permanent-magnet machines (either DC or AC) operating over a very wide speed range with an extended maximum power range above base speed. The thermal design and operation are key to their successful utilization and this is a major focus of this paper. The motors can operate at very high current density for a short time during acceleration. © 2012 IEEE.
