A method for determining a dimension in a motor is described. By applying Fourier analysis, a sequence of terms is obtained. Since the fifth harmonic is the most undesirable term, the minimization of the fifth harmonic term will make resultant waveform closer to sine wave. Based upon the above, a de ...
