In this paper, a proposed numerical frozen permeability modeling procedure is fully derived to accurately estimate the parameters of two variants of wound-field flux modulation machines (WF-FMMs) namely: wound-field flux switching machine (WF-FSM) and DC-excited vernier reluctance machine (DC-VRM). During the procedure, the contribution of saturation to the variation of the machine parameters is investigated. The parameter variation effects on the machine performance is also investigated. It is
