DESIGN STUDIES FOR SINGLE-SIDED LINEAR ELECTRIC MOTORS: HOMOPOLAR SYNCHRONOUS AND INDUCTION

Designs are made for longitudinal-flux, single-sided linear induction machines (SLIMs) and transverse-dc-flux homopolar linear synchronous machines (HLSMs). All machines have passive reaction rails. The machines are designed to provide tractive effort for conventional rail vehicles requiring output power from 200 to 3735 kW and top speeds ranging from 112 to 400 km/hr. Magnetic levitation is not a design consideration for these vehicles. All designs are optimized to achieve minimum track weight and are made according to specified magnetic and thermal criteria.
