Electromechanical integrated toroidal drive is an electromechanical coupled dynamics system. Here, the electromagnetic nonlinearity occurs which has important effects on the operating performance of the drive system. In this paper, the electromagnetic mesh stiffness is presented and nonlinear electromechanical coupled dynamic equations are deduced. Using the perturbation method, the nonlinear free vibrations of the drive system are investigated. Changes of the nonlinear vibration frequencies along with the system parameters are given. Results show that the electromagnetic nonlinearity has obvious effects on the vibration frequencies of the drive system. The results are useful in maximizing the power density of the drive system and reducing noise radiation.
