I want to design a motor system where a single stator coil is responsible for two rotors of neodymium magnets on its outside and inside, will this work, and what are the downsides I should be expecting? Any advice on perfecting the design will be very helpful.

  • $\begingroup$ I highly doubt it works properly, the outside rotor experience a huge mmf fall duo to the large air gap, and if you mange somehow to keep the field confined by reduction of the air gap, the outsider generates a rotating field which in turn affects the working of stator/rotor(inside). I guess, it first start rotating, but then Lenz's law implies that the two rotors try to cancel each other out. $\endgroup$ – Sam Farjamirad Jul 14 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ Just so you know the rotors are moving in opposite direction relative to each other. And the air gap won't be a problem. $\endgroup$ – TechDroid Jul 15 at 2:09
