  • Patent number: 10547223
    Abstract: A stator coil that is wound by concentrated winding and installed in a slot of a stator includes a winding part in which a conductor is wound pitch by pitch around a tooth of the stator and connection terminals which extend from both ends of the winding part. The winding part includes a plurality of unit winding subparts of a rectangular annular shape, a unit winding subpart including a pair of first straight-line segments, a pair of second straight-line segments, and curved corner segments which join the first straight-line segments and the second straight-line segments. In one of the pair of first straight-line segments, incline segments where the conductor is shifted by one pitch toward a winding axis direction are formed. In at least one of the unit winding subparts, a part of an incline segment is made by a part of each of the curved corner segments.
