This paper presents theoretical, simulation and experimental study or the Mixed Pole Machine (MPM), operating in the generation mode, based on a novel modeling technique. The proposed modeling technique uses the machine magnetic circuit. The paper also presents the simulation results of the radial force exerted on the rotor when the machine operates under concentric as well as eccentric rotor conditions. The operation of MPM machine with eccentric rotor positions creates asymmetrical air gap flux distributions and results in unbalanced magnetic pull. This paper presents the effect of this asymmetrical air gap flux on the resulting radial force under different conditions.
