This paper deals with Analysis and Co-Simulation based approach to identify fault detection in Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motor dive. The Finite Element Method (FEM) is used for the analysis and Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technique is used to Fed BLDC drive. The analysis and optimization are performed in the ANSYS Maxwell (2D) and RMXPRT packages and the power converter circuits are established in the ANSYS Simplorer package. The prime objective of this work is to analyse the system with a fault caused by stator short circuit. Hence, the BLDC motor drive is simulated in healthy and faulty conditions separately and the effects of fault on the characteristics of the drive are studied.
