The article "Hybrid Transverse Flux Magnetic Motors - How to Measure Parameters" appeared in the September 2020 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
These versatile, low-cost and high-torque motors may be used open loop or as full servos - and several levels in between. The motor stator laminate designs divide these motors into those optimized for full stepping, and those optimized for micro stepping and servo operation. These differences can be easily measured with basic meters and oscilloscopes. Motor to motor variations can also be easily measured, and motor inductance at nominal speed and current can also be determined.
