Soft magnetic composite (SMC) materials possess a number of unique properties and have undergone a significant development in the past decade. Based on the experiences on SMC materials and SMC electrical machines from our research group and other researchers, this paper reviews the investigation on motor topologies for SMC application. Both successful experiences and existing difficulties are analyzed and discussed. It is found that the application of SMC is preponderant in small permanent magnet motors with complex topologies and 3D magnetic flux. Possible further work required for commercial success of SMC machines is proposed.
