The paper presents the experimental research of different slotless high-speed electrical machine topologies for integration into the auxiliary power unit gearless. It was shown that the 6-poles and 8-poles with the concentrated windings and the wound stator core are the most effective for aerospace industry. Based on the experimental and computer research of different slotless high-speed electrical machine topologies. It was found that for use in the gearless auxiliary power unit of modern and perspective aircrafts, the use of the 6-poles and 8-poles slotless high-speed electrical machines with concentrated windings and wound stator core is the most effective. This topology allows providing the sufficient rigidity of the slotless high-speed electrical machine stator core, the minimum length of the frontal part and the minimum weight and size parameters of the slotless high-speed electrical machine at the maximum efficiency. In addition, in this case, the slotless high-speed electrical machine windings have a high inductance, which leads to limit the magnitude of short circuit currents.
