This paper presents a feasibility study towards a control technique for a multi-phase machine with independent windings, so-called winding reconfiguration, for application in fully electric vehicles. The goal is to shift the point where field weakening is necessary and avert its dangers, extend the constant-torque region of the machine, and eliminate the torque-pulsations associated with gear shifts. The winding reconfiguration technique is modeled, and compared with measurement data obtained on a test setup featuring a six-phase machine.
