This paper presents the thermal analysis of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSMs) for electric vehicle traction applications. Modem thermal design techniques can be classified into two general methods, analytical lumped circuit and numerical analysis. It is the aim of this paper to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of the two approaches. Two commercially available thermal design packages, Motor-CAD and FEMLAB, are used in our investigation. Motor-CAD is a 3-dimensional (3-D) lumped circuit analysis package dedicated to the thermal design of motors. FEMLAB is a multi-physics 2- and 3-dimensional finite element analysis (FEA) package.
