I'm working on a project with a PMSM. As I go through the literature I come across the following terms and wanted to make sure that I am getting right which ones are synonyms.
Surface-mounted PM = Non-salient pole rotor = Round Rotor = Cylindrical (in this case Inductances \$L_d\$ and \$L_q\$ are equal)
Interior Mounted PM = Buried PM = Salient pole rotor (in this case \$L_q \neq L_q\$)
Is that right?
