Synchronous Reluctance (SynRel) motors are known to suffer from excessive torque
ripples. The classical way to avoid this drawback of the motor is skewing the slots. This paper provides an analytic estimation of the best skew angle to minimize the ripples. The aproach utilized in this paper consists of the minimization of the magnetic energy that causes these oscillation torques. The method was validated by means of a multi-slice Finite Element Model (FEM).
