This paper discusses a novel permanent magnet machine design. In designing few simple aspects of design must be considered such as weight, cost, the operating speed, variation in speed and torque. The basic idea of designing a new model is to increase the performance of the system whilst keeping the efficiency of the machine as high as possible. Knowing the significance of improving the currently available wind turbine models in the market the idea of Halbach array is implemented using permanent magnets. Hence, a permanent magnet synchronous machine is designed using software and the finite element method is applied on the design to analyze the behavior of the machine. Based on the first Halbach model with a ratio of 1:1 five more models are made and analyzed to choose the most suitable design.
