In order to choose electric machines for transport applications, i.e. automotive, aerospace, railway and naval, a tool that can make quick tradeoffs of high specific torque electric motors has been developed. The level of the different technologies involved in an electrical machine can be quantified using the loadability concepts developed by experienced designers. After recalling these concepts, magnetic, electric and thermal balances are used to calculate the main sizes of an electric motor according to some targets. Specific power or specific torque can then be quickly assessed. The proposed approach is validated by applying the tool to some known high torque industrial motors.
