The research in order to find an optimal, efficient, and reliable design of brushless dc motor increase significantly. The compact design with high power to weight ratio will support the application of motor drive in electric vehicle. This paper presents the design and analysis of axial flux Brushless DC motor. To analyze the electrical parameters of brushless dc motor such as torque, efficiency, looses, and electric field strength which is modeled and simulated through the Finite Element Analysis Method (FEM). The proposed design is proved with the simulation software with the product of axial flux brushless dc motor with the size of 220 cm using 12 stator slots and 10 rotor poles, generates output power about 27 kW, with a speed of 2388 RPM and torque 109 Nm. This motor has a DC voltage rating of 400 V and the input current to the motor of 101 A.
