Abstract

In this paper, a novel ironless linear synchronous motor with a cooling system is proposed. Firstly, the topology of this ironless linear synchronous motor with a cooling system is introduced. Flux density in the cooling system is obtained analytically by the separation of variables method according to the boundary conditions. The eddy current braking force induced by the cooling system is calculated and validated by finite element method. Then, the influence of the motor parameters on the eddy current braking force is investigated. At last, a prototype is manufactured and some experiments are carried out with the prototype. The experiment results are validated by finite element analyzed results. View Full-Text
