The electrical machine is one of the key parts in the Free Piston Energy Converter (FPEC), and as such the electrical machine faces very tough requirements such as low weight of the translator and high power density. During the design process great emphasis has been put not only on the machine performance but also on the manufacturing process. This paper investigates a novel Transverse Flux Linear machine for the FPEC application. At first, the analytical calculations are performed based on some estimation of the leakage flux in the machine. However, during the FEM analysis and measurements it was obvious that a more detailed analysis was required in order to achieve a better agreement in results. A more detailed reluctance network is developed and used for the analysis. The results are compared with both FEM simulations and the measurements.
