This paper focuses on Electromagnetic Design of Synchronous Reluctance Motors for Electric Vehicle Considering Loss Minimization with the saturation effect (saturated case) and rotor ploes. The SynRM is considered as a special case of the interior Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine (PMSM) without permanent magnet excitation. The paper presents an analysis of the performance of an electrical machine used for electric traction in automotive applications. The machine under study is a 8-pole, 72-slot SynRM. The study includes analytical analysis using the SPEED program and numerical analysis to obtain the performance of the proposed machine. The geometry parameter optimization of the machine is also presented in detail and analyzed.
