Coil pitch Coil pitch = number of slot pitch between coil input and coil output (Easy mode / Advanced mode). Winding type * Winding type - Lap or Concentric (Easy mode / Advanced mode). Phase sequence * Phase sequence (all modes). No. parallel paths P paths Number of parallel paths (all modes).

2. Building the winding architecture - Easy mode – Main principles

 Building the winding architecture - Easy mode 1 Selection of the Easy mode for building the winding architecture. 2 Selection of coil pitch. The proposed solutions depend on the number of slots, the number of poles and the number of phases. Example 1: With 12 slots,10 poles and 3 phases, only one solution is proposed: a tooth winding. Example 2: With 48 slots, 8 poles and 3 phases, two solutions are proposed: 5 or 6. For various possibilities, a list of solutions is proposed. 3 Selection of the number of layers. The proposed solutions depend on the number of slots, the number of poles and the number of phases. Example: With 12 slots, 10 poles and 3 phases, only one solution is proposed: 1 layer. The three possible cases are illustrated below. 4 Number of parallel paths. The possible numbers of parallel paths are automatically computed and proposed to the user. When the user chooses a number of parallel paths, the connections on the winding scheme are automatically updated. See examples in Auto mode chapter. 5 Selection of winding type: Concentric or Lap.Illustration of these two types of winding is given below. 6 Definition of the phase sequence i.e. the rotation direction of the Magneto-Motive Force (M.M.F): Clockwise or Counter clockwise.The rotation direction is defined when facing the machine on the connection side. 7 Icon to restore default input values. Default values are those which defined the winding architecture by using the automatic mode. 8 Icon to apply inputs. Pressing the enter key twice applies inputs too. 9 Icon to export winding data into a text file

3. Number of layers

 Building the winding architecture – The number of layers is represented in the winding scheme 1 Example where the No. layers is equal to 1. 2 Example where the No. layers is equal to 2.

4. Coil pitch

 Building the winding architecture – Definition of the coil pitch(N° Slot return coil) - (N° Slot Go coil) 1 Example where the coil pitch is equal to 5 - From slot 1 to slot 6 (6-1 = 5). 2 Example where the coil pitch is equal to 6 - From slot 1 to slot 7 (7-1 = 6).

5. Winding type

 Building the winding architecture – Definition of the winding type: Lap or Concentric 1 Example for the concentric winding type. 2 Example for the Lap winding type.
