The three phase transfer field reluctance machine was developed at the electrical machine laboratory of University of Nigeria Nsukka in the late 90’s and since then no attempt had been made, so far, to develop the single phase counterpart. Thus the study, modelling and development of the single phase transfer field reluctance motor is the subject of this paper. To discuss this new machine, the mathematical model is first presented with the accompanying theoretical analysis and the practical approach. At appropriate intervals, comparison is made between the new machine and its induction counterpart. Also included in the text, is the calculations for both the forward and backward slips. From the characteristics and simulation results, it is found that the single phase reluctance transfer field motor is a low speed machine and can find its application in domestic areas, such as, blending, shaving and other areas that require low speed motor.

Keywords: Single phase transfer field reluctance motor; slip; speed; windings; induction machine
