This paper proposes a new topology of a Linear Veriner Hybrid Permanent Magnet (LVHPM) machine with E-core stators and a segmented chamfered translator, which is shown to give mass reduction and better magnetic flux path compared to existing designs. Linear Permanent Magnet (PM) generators have the capability to reduce the number of moving parts, providing a simpler mechanical drive train when used as an all-electric direct drive power take-off for wave energy converters. The translator can be directly connected to a heaving buoy, or similar, to translate linear motion from the ocean waves into electricity. In this paper, the electromagnetic performance including magnetic flux, back EMF, cogging, thrust force, thrust ripple as well as force density of the new segmented chamfered translator design is analyzed in Finite Element Analysis (FEA). The proposed design is compared with two different models and shown to produce the best performance among those models
