Steady-State Modeling and Analysis of a Double-Sided Interior Permanent-Magnet Flat Linear Brushless Motor With Slot-Phase Shift and Alternate Teeth Windings Academic Article uri icon


  • © 1965-2012 IEEE. Analytic modeling techniques of a double-sided interior permanent-magnet flat linear brushless motor (IPM-FLBM) with slot-phase shift and alternate teeth windings are proposed in this paper. Since the buried-type IPM-FLBM with the slot-phase shift and alternate teeth windings is fairly new compared with conventional linear motors, little research has been previously done in modeling and analysis. The analytic models presented in this paper provide the effective and reliable methods for this new type of linear motor. For this purpose, a simplified magnetic equivalent circuit and superposed winding function are investigated. A variable winding function is newly developed in order to evaluate the inductances of the salient motor with the alternate teeth windings. All analytic models are verified with 3-D finite-element analyses (FEAs) step by step. The steady-state thrust force is modeled using a classical closed-form solution for linear brushless ac motors. The static end-effect and cogging forces for the ripple force evaluation are investigated using FEA. The validities for performance parameters are demonstrated experimentally.
