A transverse flux machine (TFM) includes a stator assembly that provides a plurality of U-shaped magnetic circuits placed circumferentially around a rotor assembly. The plurality of U-shaped magnetic circuits being comprised of a first stator segment, a second stator segment, and a plurality of stator yokes. The first stator segment and the second stator segment each have a plurality of poles spaced around a first circumference and a plurality of slots spaced around a second circumference opposite each of the plurality of poles. The plurality of stator yokes each have a first end sized to fit within one of the slots associated with the first stator segment and a second end sized to fit in one of the slots associated with the second stator segment. Positioning of the first and second ends of the stator yokes within the slots of the first and second stator segments, respectively, results in the creation of the plurality of U-shaped magnetic circuits, each magnetic circuit defined by one of the plurality of poles associated with the first stator segment, one of the yokes, and one of the plurality of poles associated with the second stator segment.
