Experimental techniques for determining the machine parameters and results demonstrating their performance on an axially-laminated synchronous reluctance motor are presented. A new software implementation of the control algorithm for conducting an instantaneous flux-linkage test is developed. A low frequency AC test allowing better estimation accuracy compared to a standard 50-Hz test is proposed. Effects of stator slotting on the quality of DC torque test estimates are examined.
