Optimization of the Slot Dimensions of a Large Air-gap Linear Synchronous Motor new

F. Giacometti[1], C. R. Lines[1], R. J. Cruise[1]
[1]Texchange Limited, London, UK

A COMSOL Multiphysics® model is used to optimise the slot geometry of a large air-gap linear synchronous motor. Fixed dimensions are used for the pole pitch, stator depth, stator width and air-gap, since the amount of available space is usually limited. A parametric sweep of the slot ... Read More
