The main purpose of this paper is to investigate the influence of winding location on back electromotive force (EMF) and armature inductance in flux-switching permanent-magnet (FSPM) machines. To obtain an analytical solution, a double-stator-pitch model is built based on the equivalent magnetic circuit method. Then, the open-circuit characteristics in FSPM machines with different winding layouts are analyzed by both the analytical model and finite-element-analysis method. The analysis reveals that winding inductance is easier influenced by the winding location than the permanent-magnet flux linkage and corresponding back EMF. Finally, the analytical and finite-element predictions are verified by experimental results.
