In this paper, an overview of analytical techniques for the modeling of linear and planar permanent-magnet motors is given. These models can be used complementary to finite element analysis for fast evaluations of topologies, but they are indispensable for the design of magnetically levitated planar motors and other coreless multi-degrees of freedom motors, which are applied in (ultra) high-precision applications. The analytical methods describe the magnetic fields based on magnetic surface… CONTINUE READING
