This paper compares the prediction of two independent methods for calculating electromagnetic torque and inductances of a synchronous reluctance machine under linear condition. One method is based on winding function analysis (WFA) and the other on finite-element analysis (FEA). Both methods take into account the rotor geometry, the stator slot effects and the stator winding connections. The simulation results obtained by the WFA are compared with the ones obtained by two-dimensional FEA. It is shown that the two methods give approximately the same results but require different computation times.
