This paper presents a new theory of the end-effect (the effect of shortness of stator length) of a high-speed linear induction motor, an experimental proof of the theory, and several countermeasures to eliminate the end-effect. The theory is developed on the basis of a 2-dimensional solution of electrodynamic equations and compared with the experimental results. The experiment has been made by use of a rotary-type test facility; the maximum test velocity is 450 km per hour. It is found that the theory agrees well with the experiment and that the end-effect exercises a very adverse influence on motor performance. A parallel-connected linear induction motor is proposed as a measure to compensate the end-effect, and its performance is studied.
