High speed permanent magnet (PM) machines are used in microturbine applications due to their compactness, robust construction, and high efficiency characteristics. These machines are integrated with the turbines and rotate at the same speeds. This paper discusses in detail the losses in high speed PM machines. A typical PM machine designed for microturbine application is presented with its detailed loss calculations. Various loss verification methods are also discussed.
