This paper presents a state-of-the-art review of axial-flux permanent-magnet (AFPM) machines in the aspects of construction, features, electromagnetic and thermal modeling, simulation, analysis, design, materials, and manufacturing. Some key references on the above-mentioned aspects pertaining to the machine are discussed briefly. Particular emphasis is given on the design and performance analysis of AFPM machines. A comparison among different permanent magnet machines is also provided. Thus, this paper makes a bridge between the currently used permanent magnet machines in industry and the recent developments of AFPM machines.
