This paper deals with the design of an original superconducting motor. The topology of the motor is based on the flux concentration principle when a high flux density is first generated using a HTS solenoid supplied by a DC current. Secondly, HTS bulks, which are considered diamagnetic materials, modulate the created flux density. The obtained configuration will have a spatial variation of the flux density in the air-gap of the motor. The designed motor has a high specific torque in comparison to conventional one which makes it a good candidate for embedded applications such as aircraft, electrical train and navy propulsion.
