Flux-switching permanent magnet (FSPM) machines are double salient machines with a high energy density, very suitable for e-mobility. However, analytical methods of the FSPM cost high efforts to create and to improve them. This research shows the applicability of the numerical method, Schwarz-Christoffel (SC) mapping, to the field specialists, who are working on FSPM's. For the electromagnetic analysis, the method is implemented both as a stand alone method and as an integrated method with the tooth contour method (TCM) and the orthogonal field diagrams method (OFD). Findings are presented in a comparative analysis for all created models including FEM.
