This novel motor design is not proposed by Joe Flynn, but draws upon his PP design methodology. Mike Schukel, who has successfully built several Flynn motors, has proposed it as a simple approach to PP validation for motor applications.


This motor is a combination of one in the Joe Flynn patent and one proposed by Tim Harwood in his article on PP. Michael Schukel has subsequently stated performance did not meet his original expectations. However, it was easy to build, does not require heavy time and labor for building the laminants, and did validate the basic PP design methodologies.


Composed Feb. 23, 2006 by Michael Schukel.

Here is a preliminary design for a PPMT motor is go for laminate cutting stage.

Keeping in mind that this design uses oem laminates and the only cutting that's involved is to cut the "E" laminates in half and to cut 2 radiuses to make the ends round. The rotor consists of magnetically permeable cores.
