A novel design and electromagnetic analysis for a linear switched reluctance motor
A new structure of a linear switched reluctance motor is proposed in this paper. With the permanent magnet inserted in the movers, the performance of the original motor is improved. An electromagnetic analysis is done by using the finite element analysis. The influence of the permanent magnets in different positions of the movers on the electromagnetic force is investigated. Furthermore, a theoretical analysis is made, based on the Schwarz–Christoffel transformation and the Maxwell stress tensor method. The mathematic model is also made with the consideration of the end effect and the cogging effect. The theoretical result of the electromagnetic force is compared with the simulation result. The comparison shows that the error is limited. The analysis of the flux, the magnetic field, and the inductance is then made. The results confirm that the new structure makes the motor more linearized. The new structure of linear switched reluctance motor can contribute to reducing the ripple in the electromagnetic force.
