Tooth width

Width of the stator teeth.

The tooth width is a geometry parameter that is only available in stator templates that have parallel teeth. According to Fig. 1 it is the constant width of the stator teeth along the stator slot.

The tooth width should be as small as possible in order to allow for a large stator slot area. However, the tooth width should be large enough to be able to carry the magnetic flux and not saturate the iron in the stator teeth (consult the plot of the magnetic field).
