  4. Abstract:
  5. Although iron-cored superconducting machine has been recently proposed in many papers for its advantages over conventional air-cored structure such as less cost and less perpendicular magnetic component on HTS tapes it has not been studied analytically yet. This paper analytically investigates a general model for iron-cored superconducting synchronous machine. In this paper, analytical equations for magnetic flux in different regions of machine have been proposed along with an algorithm to solve the equations. The analytical equations will be then used to optimize the thickness of rotor iron in order to maximize the machine power density. Analytical and finite element simulation results will be compared to verify the analytical approach
