Inductance is an important parameter to assess electric motor characteristics. In this paper, the methods of apparent and incremental inductance calculations are introduced for a transverse flux linear motor (TFLM), which has a peculiar coil shape. To consider the nonlinearity of magnetic material, nonlinear analysis is performed by 3-dimensional equivalent magnetic circuit network (3D EMCN). The calculation method is verified by test results.
