Abstract
The project aims to develop a strategy for a dramatically lighter and more efficient electric motor, with initial emphasis on a 7 hp class, 12" diameter fan for VTOL UAVs. For this, D-STAR is proposing a new motor architecture that combines and enhances the best features of contemporary motor architectures. For the Phase 1, the project tasks include : preliminary design and layout of the TAG Motor, electro-magnetic design and optimization of the copper armatures, electronic design of the motor drive circuits, design iteration and optimization, and reporting & planning.
