A three-phase, segmental-rotor, flux-switching synchronous motor is presented for the first time, with both field and armature windings placed on the stator. Mutual coupling of the circuits is through segments whose motion causes switching of flux in the armature circuit. The magnetic geometry is substantially different to that of other flux-switching(More)
This paper introduces a three-phase segmental-rotor flux-switching synchronous motor employing permanent-magnet (PM) excitation in the stator. Flux-switching machines operate with bipolar flux and flux linkages and are therefore associated with high torque densities. Employing a segmental rotor significantly alters the scheme for flux switching from that(More)
