Disk Type Variable Reluctance (DTVR) resolvers have distinguished performance under run out fault comparing to conventional sinusoidal rotor resolvers. However, their accuracy under inclined rotor fault along with different types of eccentricities includes static and dynamic eccentricities are questioned. Furthermore, due to thin copper wires that are used for signal and excitation coils of resolver there is high risk of short circuit fault in the coils. So, in this study the performance of the sinusoidal rotor DTVR resolver under the mentioned faults are studied. The quality of output voltages along with position error of the sensor is discussed. 3-D time stepping finite element method is used to show the effect of different faults. Finally, the prototype of the studied resolver is constructed and tested. The employed test bed is built in such a way that is able to apply controllable level of different mechanical faults. Good agreement is obtained between the finite element and the experimental results, validating the success of the presented analysis.
