about its shaft, but there is no armature winding and current on the rotor.
It can be stated, referring to the permanent magnet with the characteristic
showninFigure4.28,the
fl
ux density going through the magnet is constant
at B
r
. Therefore, the
fl
ux φ
m
produced by the magnet is constant. Neglecting
the leakage

eld, the airgap

is same as φ

, as explained in section 4.1.6.
Therefore, φ
