Abstract: Severe leakage flux is a long-existed drawback in the transverse-flux permanent magnet machines (TFPMs), which results in a low permanent magnet (PM) utilization rate and prominent cogging torque in TFPMs. Aiming to solve this problem, this paper presents a novel consequent-pole transverse-flux machine (CP-TFM). The key is to artificially shift the upper and lower salient-pole rotors with a half-pole pitch and connect them with a ring-shaped core. Therefore, a complementary magnetic circuit is constructed to reduce the flux leakage between the adjacent poles as well as improve the PM utilization rate. To verify the feasibility of design, a 3-D finite-element model is established and its electromagnetic performance is evaluated. With the same peripheral dimension and copper loss, a quantitative comparison is carried out between the proposed CP-TFM and conventional TFPM. Finite-element simulation results reveal that compared to its contrast, the proposed solution can almost double the PM utilization ratio and effectively reduce the cogging torque.
