Rotor heat generation control technology

To respond to increased magnetic flux variations in the rotor due to reluctance torque, magnetic partitioning was employed to greatly suppress the occurrence of eddy currents. High heat-resistant magnets and a magnetic circuit configuration appropriate for high output further achieved a high demagnetization suppression effect. This results in an expanded high-output range at high rpms.
