This paper deals with the post-assembly magnetization process of motors using ferrite permanent magnets (PMs). In order to meet the needs of mass production, most motors are magnetized post assembly. However, increasing complex shapes are required to maximize the flux of PMs. As a result, certain locations in the magnet are not fully magnetized by the magnetizing fixture due to insufficient magnetomotive force. Therefore, an analysis concerning the post-assembly magnetization is needed. In this paper, the concentrated flux spoke-type synchronous motor is analyzed with regard to the magnetization process. Owing to more flux, this motor is designed as a V-shape PM. Therefore, it is not fully magnetized according to magnet shape. By identifying the effect of the magnet shape, the magnetization level is compared by the amount of flux linkage between post assembly and at full magnetization. Finally, the back electromotive force is estimated by the post-assembly magnetization method according to the magnet shape.
