A novel fault-tolerant flux-switching permanent-magnet synchronous machine drive topology is presented, which is able to operate during open-and short-circuit winding and converter faults. The scheme is based on a dual winding motor supplied from two separate vector-controlled voltage-sourced inverter drives. The windings are arranged in a way so as to form two independent and isolated sets. Simulation and experimental work will detail the drive's performance during both healthy and faulty scenarios including short-circuit faults and will show the drive robustness to operate in these conditions.
