Abstract According to the development of power electronic element(GTO, IGBT) and material for electrical machines(permanent magnet, super conductor), the technology for electrical machines is now a day rapidly developing. Here with, a novel electrical machine, based on the new conception of transverse flux configuration leads to a considerable increase in power density and enables simultaneously high efficiency. The designed and measured performance of transverse machine for railway traction system revealed a great potential of system improvements to reduce linear motor mass.
