Multiphase winding configurations have gained significant attention in high-performance variable speed drives and wind energy conversion systems (WECS) owing to their myriad advantages. In the available literature, various multiphase winding layouts have been designed aiming at boosting the machine performance to meet the requirements of the proposed applications. Ultimately, this paper surveyed the state-of-the-art in the available multiphase winding layouts proposed for various innovative applications. Various types of windings were discussed, while investigating their advantages and limitations. This typically considers the winding layouts employed in multiphase induction motors (IMs) and permanent magnet (PM) machines with prime phase and multiple three-phase orders. This study extensively provides innovative winding arrangements that offer better machine characteristics in terms of torque density, efficiency, and fault-tolerance capability. Moreover, the construction of multiphase machines with general n -phase using standard three-phase stator frames has been elaborated. This latter technique obviates the basic necessity of special stator frames with a prime number of phases. Finally, this paper sheds light on the commercial applications that include multiphase winding layouts.
