Flux switching machines (FSMs), new type of electric machines with unique operating principles have been introduced and published recently. FSMs contain armature and excitation sources on the stator with robust rotor structure. According to rotor structure FSMs can be classified into two types namely salient pole rotor and segmental pole rotor. Various topologies have been studied and published using both rotor structures, however salient pole rotor has a demerit of less torque generation due to longer flux path resulting flux leakage surrounding the rotor. In this paper a new structure of hybrid excitation FSM (HEFSM) with segmental rotor is proposed and a comparative analysis with the invented field excitation FSM (FEFSM) and permanent magnet FSM (PMFSM) is presented. Initially, coil arrangement tests are examined to confirm the operating principle of HEFSM with segmental rotor. Moreover, the cogging torque, induced voltage, magnetic flux, torque at various armature current densities and power characteristics are observed based on 2D- finite element analysis (FEA)
