This paper investigates methods of magnet mass reduction in linear flux switching permanent magnet (LFSPM) machines by introducing tapered consequent poles. Based on the finite element analysis (FEA) three different models are designed, investigated and compared. The obtained results indicate that by adopting the proposed tapered ferromagnetic poles a considerable saving of material cost and weight is obtained without sacrificing the machine performance.
