This paper explores the theory and potential of a family of reluctance motors as well as brief review of different types of reluctance motors, motivated by the increased demands for geometric versatility and ruggedness for electric motors. This paper presents a new and novel disc type reluctance motor that has been designed built, tested, and analyzed. The magnetic circuit-based analysis shows an obtainable torque per volume 5 KNm/m3 for the motor which is comparable with other types of electric motors.
