Abstract: This paper presents a new switched reluctance motor (SRM) with wide speed range for the application of electric vehicles. It has an in-wheel structure for direct drive and multiple teeth per stator pole to enhance output torque. Also, the number of rotor poles is more than that of stator teeth. A 6/16 three-phase in-wheel SRM with the concepts of multi-teeth per stator pole and more rotor poles than stator teeth has been proposed for analysis. The torque performance of the topology with multi-teeth per stator pole is proven by theoretical analysis. Moreover, a new design formula is introduced for a novel combination of stator and rotor poles. The parameters of the motor are optimized by genetic algorithm method for the maximum torque output. Then the torque performance is computed by finite-element method (FEM) and compared with its counterparts, including three-phase 6/8 and 6/10 SRMs. The FEM results exhibit higher torque density for the proposed topology.
