In this paper, an original design failure mode and effects analysis methodology that can be applied to all modern and advanced electrical machines has been proposed. The developed methodology application is possible in the real electrical machines manufacture, which is confirmed by “Tekhnodinamika” holding representatives. On the example of the high-torque permanent magnets synchronous motor, the stages of the electrical machine hierarchical decomposition, the definition of the electrical machine and its components functions, the theory of failures and failure modes have been considered. The prospects and the opportunities that failure mode and effects analysis open in the design and in the production of modern and advanced electrical machines have been described. Proposed failure mode and effects analysis methodology application in electrical machines engineering will allow avoiding serious failures in commercially available electrical machines, as well as collecting into one system the rules that should be followed by electrical machines designers and manufacturers. The regulated failure mode and effects analysis methodology usage in the electrical machines design and manufacture should significantly improve the quality of manufactured products, increase its competitiveness and consumer qualities, and also reduce production costs.
