This paper presents a detailed description of downsized multi-segmented plate permanent magnet linear launcher, which puts emphasis on modular stator structure. For multi-segmented stator launcher with concentrated winding, specific topology and slot/pole number combinations are discussed. Considering different end boundary, back electromotive force (EMF) and inductance parameter of the starting and middle segments are investigated by finite element method (FEM), and then the accuracy of… CONTINUE READING
