This research examines the structural and vibrational characteristics of double-sided flux-concentrating transverse flux machines (TFMs), designed for direct-drive application. Two prototypes of TFM with different stator cores, one with Quasi U-Core and the other with E-Core, have been used for this study. Three-dimensional finite element analysis has been carried out to determine the no-load and with-load performances of the TFMs along with their fluctuating axial electromagnetic force densities acting on the stator teeth. The deformation response of the stator cores was observed in the static structural analysis. Acceleration and noise measurements were experimentally obtained to characterize the vibrational performance of the prototypes.
