It is now evident that the value of endowing rotating machines with the capability to produce transverse forces in addition to their normal torque-producing function can be extremely high. The bridge configured winding is a cost-saving connection scheme for electrical machines to exploit transverse magnetic forces on the rotors. The winding scheme retains the machine's three-phase terminals such that ordinary motor inverters can be employed for the normal torque-producing function while providing separate terminals for transverse force action. This paper describes the practical implementation of such a winding connection in a conventional electric machine and demonstrates that controllable transverse forces can be produced.
