A new method of analyses for linear induction machines, the matrix method, has been developed. The method handles linear induction motors, both single- and double-sided, and linear induction liquid metal pumps and generators, both flat and annular. The primary currents can be prescribed, calculated from prescribed phase voltages, or optimized for maximum machine efficiency. The matrix method incorporates accurate modeling of the magnetic field of the finite-length iron including the fields due to fringing, variable gap, slots, coils, and phase belts. The coils may have any arbitrary phase connections.
