This paper deals with the design of an electromagnetic aircraft launch system (EMALS). The system studied is based on a linear permanent-magnet (PM) machine. For the same thermal, geometric, and feeding specifications, original configurations of linear machines have been studied and compared to more classical ones in terms of performance. The work shows(More)
This paper describes a design approach dedicated to multiphase surface mounted permanent magnet SMPM machines. Based on a vectorial multimachine modelling that splits the multiphase machine in a set of magnetically independent fictitious machines, this approach allows to determine a pertinent control topology in case of pulse width modulation (PWM) voltage(More)
