Brushless doubly fed induction machines (BDFIM) have prominent features for variable speed applications. The design and performance analysis of the machine is however complex compared to the conventional induction machines due to its special magnetic fields generated from two stator winding with different pole numbers and frequencies. In this paper, the effective parameters in BDFIM design and their limitations are investigated. In relation with the design objectives, control variables are identified, and an optimal prototype machine design is proposed. The results from experimental tests and finite element simulations of a 3 kW prototype BDFIM are presented to assess the effectiveness of the proposed parameters determination method.
