For applications demanding a high torque density and high speed capability, the flux switching permanent magnet machine is an excellent candidate. However, the double salient structure and nonlinear behavior increases the challenge to model the magnetic field distribution and torque output. To date, only the magnetic equivalent circuit (MEC) is employed to model the magnetic field in an analytical manner. However, the MEC method suffers from a coarse discretization and the need for a relative complex adjustment when rotor movement or a parametric sweep is considered. Therefore this paper discusses an alternative technique based on the harmonic or Fourier model which solves these difficulties.
