Flux-switching machines are attracting interest among researchers over the last decade due to the increased importance of energy efficient systems. Among this class of machines, the rotary flux-switching PM machines (FSPM) with high power density are mostly analyzed by magnetic equivalent circuit (MEC) and finite element methods (FEM). In addition to those analysis techniques, this paper introduces the implementation of the tooth contour method (TCM) for the first time for a rotary FSPM. During the modeling phase, many points are revealed which are essential for the electromagnetic behavior of this unconventional machine.
