We developed a magnetic field analysis method for IPM motors using the three-dimensional finite element method with prismatic elements. This paper describes the accuracy and the calculation time of the method compared with that with tetrahedral elements, quantitatively. This paper also describes a numerical technique for permanent magnets division in an IPM motor.
