Abstract

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to propose a novel type of switched flux PM machines with two separate stators. Design/methodology/approach - 2D-FEA is employed to analyze the electromagnetic performance of the proposed machines. Moreover, the results are validated by experiments. Findings - The proposed machine has higher torque density, less unbalanced magnetic force on the modulating steel piece and uses less PM volume. Originality/value - The proposed machine is a low-cost novel topology with different rotor pole combinations.
