In a three-phase AC motor, when 2P represents the number of poles of a rotor and N represents the number of slots for inserting windings of a stator therethrough, the division of N by P is not an integer. When X represents the quotient of the division of N by 2P, the stator includes a first annular winding portion made of one coil wound by wave winding at a slot pitch of X or X+1 through the slots, a second annular winding portion wound in the same slot pitch as the first annular winding portion in such a position as not to completely overlap the first annular winding portion, and a plurality of third winding portions each made of the winding wound around the two slots. The first and second annular winding portions and the plurality of third winding portions are connected in series on a phase-by-phase basis.



DISTRIBUTED WINDING RADIAL GAP-TYPE MOTOR AND WINDING ARRANGEMENT METHOD THEREFOR

A winding arrangement method for a radial gap-type motor in which a three phase winding wound in a distributed winding form is inserted in slots of a stator includes: a coil forming step that, for each phase, forms a coil wound for each one pole pair; a coil group forming step that, for each phase, forms a first coil group by connecting odd-number-th coils along a direction of rotation via crossover wires, and forms a second coil group by connecting even-number-th coils along the direction of rotation via crossover wires; and a parallel-connecting step that, for each phase, connects the first coil group and the second coil group at one end, to form a current input side lead wire at the connection point, and connects the first coil group and the second coil group at the other end, to form a neutral point at the connection point.
