A new structure of field excitation flux switching motor (FEFSM) is discussed as an alternative candidate of non Permanent Magnet (PM) machine. Design principles and initial performances of the proposed motor at various rotor pole numbers with 12 stator slots are demonstrated. Design of the new structure different from the previous design which no permanent magnets. Initially, the coil arrangement test are examined to validate the operating principle of the motor and to certify the zero rotor position. Furthermore, the profile of flux linkage, induced voltage, cogging torque and power characteristics are observed based on 2D- finite element analysis (FEA). The result obtained show that the appropriate combination of stator slot rotor pole configurations are 12S-10P and 12S-14P which initially provide lowest cogging torque, highest power and torque with sinusoidal back-emf waveforms. Therefore, by further design modification and optimization it is expected that the low cost motor will successfully achieved the target performances.
