For a given rotor diameter, the number of magnetic poles on the rotor directly affects the torque available, the top speed available, and the power needed to hold a load. Higher pole counts lead to higher torque, lower top speed, and a higher motor quality factor, which is defined as Kq = T / √ P (in units of Nm/W) The effect is as if a … [Read More...]
