A general survey is given here of the development of linear motors--with special reference to the short-stator induction motor. The various types of construction are described and the operational behavior of this type of motor together with the features which distinguish it from conventional rotating machines is explained. Taking large linear motors already built as examples, their constructional features and the state of the art are described. In conclusion attention is drawn to the particular importance of the linear induction motor for future high-speed induction transport technology and its alternatives.
