NON-UNIFORM POWER DISTRIBUTION IN LINEAR INDUCTION MOTORS DUE TO END EFFECTS
This paper presents experimental data showing the effects of electrical and magnetic discontinuities on linear induction motor (LIM) performance. The power distribution along the LIM, the effect of the machine length, and the validity of assuming a LIM model in which the iron extends beyond the bound of the winding were investigated. The test bed for the experiments was the linear induction motor research vehicle (LIMRV). The LIMRV, an aerodynamically shaped, 112 m/s (250-mph) steel wheel on steel rail vehicle, was powered by an onboard gas turbine-driven alternator. The thrust-producing element of the propulsion system is a 2500-hp LIM, rated at 1040 v line-to-line, at 173.3 Hz.
