Abstract

Having the finite length of the stator or rotor of the single-sided linear induction motors (SLIM) leads to negative affect on the performance. These electromagnetic effects occur entry-end and exitend of the SLIM. The entry end wave reduces the synchronous wave at high frequency operations. An analytic technique based on the equivalent circuit taking into longitudinal end effect and other effects account (transverse edge, saturation etc...) are used to predict the performance of the SLIM. However, in the high speed applications of SLIMs, such as transportation, the performance prediction is very important for design. Analytical tool is developed to predict the performance of the SLIM. This tool is validated with the test results in the literature (Canadian Institute of Guided Ground Transport LIM). The simulation results, which are produced by this analytic tool, are obtained for the designed and constructed SLIM. Results are reported.
