This paper considers a new switched reluctance motor (SRM) structure aiming at high starting torque with low volume. For some applications such as EVs (Electrical Vehicles), the motor volume and starting torque is a critical point in its design. In many methods, reducing the motor volume causes reduction in starting torque and decreases the motor efficiency. Unlike conventional SRMs, the rotor pole is skewed in the proposed structure along the motor axis. An approximated two-dimensional finite element method (FEM) is used to speed up computational time and some comparisons with three-dimensional FEM are considered for more reliability. Final results show the efficiency of the proposed structure.
