  • Patent number: 10177615
    Abstract: A rotating electric machine includes a stator having a stator coil and a rotor provided rotatably around a specific rotation axis with respect to the stator. The rotor includes a plurality of magnets, a plurality of magnetically-assisted salient pole members provided between poles of any adjacent two magnets from among the plurality of magnets, and a magnetoresistance variation unit provided in the magnetically-assisted salient pole member along an axial direction of the rotation axis at a position offset in a circumferential direction of the rotation axis from a q-axis passing through a salient pole center of the magnetically-assisted salient pole member. The amount of offset of the magnetoresistance variation unit from the q-axis varies depending on positions of the magnetically-assisted salient pole members so that torque fluctuations cancel each other when power is applied.
