Flux switching machines (FSMs) that consist of all flux sources in the stator have been developed in recent years due to their definite advantage of single piece robust rotor structure suitable for high speed applications. They can be categorized into three groups that are permanent magnet (PM) FSM, field excitation (FE) FSM, and hybrid excitation (HE) FSM. Both PMFSM and FEFSM has only PM and field excitation coil (FEC), respectively as their main flux sources, while HEFSM combines both PM and FECs. Among these FSMs, the FEFSM offers advantages of low cost, simple construction and variable flux control capabilities suitable for various performances. In this paper, design study and flux interaction analysis of 24S-10P FEFSM with single direction of FEC winding is presented. Initially, design procedures of the FEFSM including parts drawing, materials and conditions setting, and properties setting are explained. Then, coil arrangement tests are examined to confirm the machine operating principle and position of each armature coil phase. Finally, the flux interaction between DC FEC and armature coil, FEC flux capabilities at various current condition, and initial torque are also investigated.
