Variable reluctance (VR) resolvers are widely used in industrial applications such as aerospace, military, robotic, control of hybrid motors, and navigation for solar systems. Variable reluctance resolvers are preferred because of simplified structure and affordable prices in many applications in comparison with to the coiled rotor resolvers. In this study, effect of variation of physical parameters including skewing and opening slots of stator is investigated. The performance of the proposed structure is simulated by using a 3-D time stepping finite element method.
