A four-quadrant transducer (4QT) electric machine is an integrated electric machine used for hybrid electric vehicles. In this article a 4QT prototype machine that is radially integrated by two permanent-magnet synchronous machines is analyzed. Skewed slots are adopted for the two machines, and the multislice two-dimensional time-stepping finite element method is used to calculate the performance. The dividing method of the 4QT, the choice of calculated cutplanes and the determination of the number of slices are discussed. The no-load and load performance of the 4QT are calculated. The 4QT prototype machine was tested. The tested no-load line-to-line back electromotive force curves are in good agreement with the calculated ones, which verifies the feasibility of the proposed method.
