This research focuses on the development of a semi-analytical approach to the design of Synchronous Reluctance Machines. A closed analytical formula for the steady-state electromagnetic torque of a synchronous reluctance machine is presented based on the Fourier coefficients of the series expansion of the phase inductance. The accuracy of the developed design tool is validated with finite element calculations for a salient pole rotor geometry. The approach presented in this paper considerably reduces the computation time and effort at least 10% while ensuring a good accuracy of torque estimation (less than 5%).
