About this book

Introduction

This book introduces readers to two major sustainable applications of linear synchronous machines: wave energy conversion and magnetic levitation train technology. To do so, it begins with a state-of-the-art review of linear machines, covering induction and synchronous topologies and their applications, with a particular focus on sustainable applications. This is followed by an analysis of the electromagnetic modeling of linear synchronous machines, the goal being to investigate their main features, especially their force production capabilities.

About the authors

Amal Souissi received her BS degree in Electromechanical Engineering and her PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the Sfax Engineering National School (SENS), University of Sfax, Tunisia, in 2014 and 2017, respectively. She is a member of the University’s Research Laboratory on Renewable Energies and Electric Vehicles (RELEV), where she is currently engaged in a post-doc project on linear machines. Dr. Souissi has been a member of the organizing committee of the International Conference on Ecological Vehicles and Renewable Energies, Monte Carlo, Monaco, since 2015.

Ahmed Masmoudi received the B.S degree from Sfax Engineering National School (SENS), University of Sfax, Tunisia, in 1984, the Ph.D degree from Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, France, in 1994, and the Research Management Ability degree from SENS, in 2001, all in electrical engineering. In August 1984, he joined Shlumberger as a field engineer. After this industrial experience, he joined the Tunisian University where he held different positions involved in both education and research activities. He is currently a professor of electric power engineering at SENS, the head of the Research Laboratory on Renewable Energies and Electric Vehicles (RELEV) and the coordinator of the master on Sustainable Mobility Actuators: Research and Technology.  He published up to 85 journal papers, 19 among which in IEEE transactions. He presented up 367 papers in international conferences, 9 among which in plenary sessions, and 3 have been rewarded by the best presented paper prize. He is the co-inventor of a USA patent. He is the chairman of the Program and Publication Committees of the International Conference on Ecological Vehicles and Renewable Energies (EVER), organized every year in Monte-Carlo, Monaco, since 2006. He was also the chairman of the Technical Program and Publication Committees of the first International Conference on Sustainable Mobility Applications, Renewables, and Technology (SMART) which has been held in Kuwait in November 2015. Its involvement in the above conferences has been marked by an intensive guest-editorship activity with the publication of many special issues of several journals including the IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, COMPEL, ELECTROMOTION, and ETEP. Professor Masmoudi is a Senior member, IEEE. His main interests include the design of new topologies of ac machines allied to the implementation of advanced and efficient control strategies in drives and generators, applied to renewable energy as well as to electrical automotive systems.

 Imen Abdennadher received her BS degree in Electromechanical Engineering, her Master’s degree and her PhD degree from the Sfax Engineering National School (SENS), University of Sfax, Tunisia, in 2005, 2006 and 2012, respectively.In 2009, she joined Tunisian University, where she held various teaching and research positions. She is currently an Associate Professor of Electrical Power Engineering at the SENS and a member of the Research Laboratory on Renewable Energies and Electric Vehicles (RELEV), University of Sfax. Dr. Abdennadher is a member of the organizing committee of the International Conference on Ecological Vehicles and Renewable Energies, Monte Carlo, Monaco. Her major interests include the design, analysis, sizing and optimization of permanent magnet (PM) synchronous machines, including rotating and linear topologies.
