Publication# Pseudo-Three-Dimensional Analytical Model of Linear Induction Motors for High-Speed Applications

Abstract

Literature on linear induction motors (LIMs) has proposed several approaches to model the behavior of such devices for different applications. In terms of accuracy and fidelity, field analysis-based models are the most relevant. Closed-form or numerical solutions can be derived, based on the complexity of the model and the underlying hypotheses. In terms of simplicity, equivalent circuit-based models are the most effective, since they can be easily integrated into optimization frameworks. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, the literature has not yet provided a computationally efficient LIM analytical model that considers the main characteristics of this type of motor altogether (i.e. finite motor length, magnetomotive force (mmf) space harmonics, slot effect, edge effect, and tail effect) and that is numerically and experimentally validated, especially at high speed (i.e. v ≃ 100ms -1 ). Within this context, this paper proposes a field analysis-based pseudo-three-dimensional model of LIMs that explicitly takes into account the above-mentioned effects. The derived closed-form solution makes the model computationally more effective than traditional f.e.m. models and, therefore, suitable to be coupled with optimization frameworks for optimal LIM design. The performance and accuracy of the proposed model are assessed through numerical simulations and experimental measurements, carried out by means of a dedicated test bench.

Numerical analysis

Numerical analysis is the study of algorithms that use numerical approximation (as opposed to symbolic manipulations) for the problems of mathematical analysis (as distinguished from discrete mathematics). It is the study of numerical methods that attempt at finding approximate solutions of problems rather than the exact ones. Numerical analysis finds application in all fields of engineering and the physical sciences, and in the 21st century also the life and social sciences, medicine, business and even the arts.

Magnetomotive force

In physics, the magnetomotive force (abbreviated mmf or MMF, symbol ) is a quantity appearing in the equation for the magnetic flux in a magnetic circuit, Hopkinson's law. It is the property of certain substances or phenomena that give rise to magnetic fields: where Φ is the magnetic flux and is the reluctance of the circuit. It can be seen that the magnetomotive force plays a role in this equation analogous to the voltage V in Ohm's law, V = IR, since it is the cause of magnetic flux in a magnetic circuit: where N is the number of turns in the coil and I is the electric current through the circuit.

Numerical methods for partial differential equations

Numerical methods for partial differential equations is the branch of numerical analysis that studies the numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDEs). In principle, specialized methods for hyperbolic, parabolic or elliptic partial differential equations exist. Finite difference method In this method, functions are represented by their values at certain grid points and derivatives are approximated through differences in these values.
