Design of High Speed (HS) electric machines is an iterative process that requires a multidisciplinary design team to accomplish the required performance. In this study, a design space method (DSM) is developed to streamline conceptual designing of a high-speed and high-power electric machine. The method uses analytical equations and a rotordynamic model to determine geometrical dimensions based on the application requirements. These dimensions create a feasible baseline design for the particular application. However, considering the dimensions as design variables and using the baseline design as a starting point, a multidimensional combination and interaction of the design variables and the correlated output for the particular topology of motor and performance range can be further studied for design exploration and optimization purposes. The study includes a test case where the baseline dimensions are determined and compared to an existing machine from literature, and then further explored to identify the sensitivity of different outputs with respect to different design variables. The method enables rapid design iterations, rotordynamics and rotor mass optimization. The baseline design can be also used as a starting point for the detailed design.
