The aim of this paper is to present the design and modeling of a machine that possesses some advantageous characteristics for wind energy conversion applications. The studied machine is a double stator inner rotor axial airgap flux switching permanent magnet machine (AFSPM). The paper will start by presenting this type of machine and its points of interest. Then, it will continue by introducing the constructed prototype and its specifications and structure. This prototype has been designed
more » ... on a reference specification used at GREAH to develop different prototypes and compare their performances. The second part will introduce the reluctance network model specifically constructed for this type of machine. The constructed model was validated by comparing its results to the results from the finite element method model. Finally, the experimental results will be presented and compared to the reluctance network (RN) model results where satisfying agreement between both results was obtained.
