Soft magnetic composite (SMC) materials are especially suitable for construction of low-cost high-performance motors with three-dimensional (3-D) magnetic fields. The 3-D finite-element analysis (FEA) conducted in the design of a claw pole transverse flux motor (CPTFM) with an SMC core reveals very complicated B (flux density) loci in the core when the motor rotates. In order to understand and account for the effects of the patterns of B loci on motor parameters and performance such as core losses, a 3-D magnetic property testing system was built for magnetic measurement on a cubic SMC sample. 3-D rotational core loss models in SMC materials and rotating motors are developed. © 2005 IEEE.
