        A synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) which uses a sinusoidal wave to drive a rotor constructed with several flux barriers. The stator winding of this motor is the same specifications as that used in an induction motor or a brushless motor which utilizes permanent magnet. This paper presents the design of synchronous reluctance motor with assistant of permanent magnet for 8kg washing machine. At the beginning of the design, main dimension of stator and number of stator slots are calculated. Rotors design parameters such as flux barriers, different insulation, magnet position are considered after calculating the number of stator slot. The rotor design process is considered to determine the best value for maximum average torque and minimum torque ripple. Permanent magnets are placed inside the flux barriers and results are verified by using finite element method (FEM).
