Finite Element Analysis of Single Sided Linear Induction Motor
Engineering and Technology Journal,
2010, Volume 28, Issue 15, Pages 5113-5123
This paper presents analysis and operation of linear induction motor (LIM) using finite element method (FEM). The solution of magnetic field problem is performed for both two and three dimensional approaches. Magnetic vector potential, flux density, field intensity, induced rotor current, and propulsion force are computed for LIM model studied. The effect of velocity is taken into consideration. The primary winding self and mutual inductances are computed for three dimensional analysis.
