THE SINGLE-SIDED LIM WITH SATURATED BACK IRON

For reasons of economy, the single-sided Linear Induction Motor should be designed to operate with saturated reaction rail back iron. The report discusses the effects on back iron saturation on the performance of the motor, and formulates a technique for determining the minimum thickness of iron required. As a specific example, the TACRV motor is analyzed in detail. It is found that a laminated iron backing of only 3/4 inch thickness is required. (Author)
