This paper presents the static analysis of 18-slot/16-pole Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) using Finite Element Analysis. The motor is designed from half model of rotor and stator. Then it is built until becoming a complete motor. The stator and rotor core are made from silicon steel laminations, and Neodymium magnets is used for permanent magnet and located at the rotor surface. A 120 turns of coil per phase is wounded around the 18-slot of the motor. It consists of winding for phase A, B, and C respectively. The phase windings are not supplied and the rotor is moved manually. Then the motor flux linkage, induced back-electromagnetic force, and cogging torque are simulated and results show the output performing correctly with the mathematical method. The developed motor can be improved by adjusting the stator tooth width.
