Core loss is one of the key factors for performance evaluation of switched reluctance machines. In this paper, core loss analysis of the planar switched reluctance motor (PSRM) is calculated based on the 3-D time-stepping finite element methods. The numerical analysis for the computation of the core loss is discussed, also its transient and average core loss in the mover and the stator are calculated. The corresponding experiments of measurement loss for a PSRM prototype are conducted and the results validate the accuracy from the numerical analysis. It can be concluded that core loss dominates around the corner of the mover and stator cores.
