A novel axial field flux-switching permanent magnet (AFFSPM) machine with a doubly-salient structure is presented as a wind power generator. One rotor is sandwiched between two stators in which both windings and permanent magnets are placed. This novel generator is suitable for the wind power generation system because of its shorter axial length and higher power density. A three-phase 12/10-pole 0.6 kW AFFSPM generator is designed. The power-size equation of the machine is deduced, and the size of generator is determined. Based on the 3-D finite element method, the electromagnetic performances of the generator are investigated. According to the theoretical calculation, a prototype is manufactured and the experiments are done. The analysis results are consistent with the experimental ones well.
