CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FORCE COMPONENTS OF AN AIR-CORED LINEAR SYNCHRONOUS MOTOR WITH SUPERCONDUCTING EXCITATION MAGNETS

A method of calculation is presented to analyze the various characteristics of an air-cored linear synchronous motor, which has been proposed as the propulsion system for high-speed magnetically levitated vehicles. The method uses firstly Biot-Savart's Law to determine the magnetic flux density vector and then Ampere's Law to calculate the forces and moments acting on the individual conductors of the stator winding as well as on the superconducting excitation magnets. Both the effects of stator winding geometry and for current harmonics in the power supply are investigated.
