Permanent magnet (PM) machines have been widely used in several industrial applications due to their outstanding characteristics. Among these machines comes the axial flux (AFPM) machine of air-cored stator windings. Such a machine has demonstrated several merits over the traditional radial flux PM machines mainly due to the lower electrical losses and shorter axial length. This paper is concerned with the determination of the inductance of air-cored AFPM machine using analytical and finite element analysis (FEA). The results of the two techniques are presented and compared to each other. Analytical and FEA results are validated by experimental results.
