This paper deals with comparison and analysis of stator plate holder on Yokeless and segmented armature (YASA) machine. YASA topology consists of two rotors and one inner stator comprised of many independent segments. Core for stator uses Soft Magnetic Composite (SMC) to conduct the three-dimensional magnetic flux. All stator segments and concentrated winding are fixed with the aid of two annular plates. There are cavities on both plates which have the same shape as the shoe of the stator segment. Moreover, the deformation of the plates must be kept as low as possible and have very high yield strength because of stress from the bearing. A complex structure, high durability, and high electrical resistance are the challenges. Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is usually used as the plates, however high price and manufacturing cost remain an issue. Some other materials have a possibility and approach to PEEK capability. In this paper, candidate materials will be developed as a specimen and tested on the BH-Curve meter. The BH-Curve data provide simulation on Finite Element Magnetic Method (FEMM). The advantages and disadvantages are discussed in this paper. The analysis result demonstrates that other materials possess a similar capability as PEEK related to YASA stator plate holder.
