Abstract

A new approach has been proposed to evaluate the influence of the transverse edge effect of high-temperature superconducting (HTS) linear induction motor (LIM) in this paper. Taking a 3.5 kW single-sided HTS LIM for an example, the cross-flux density distributions were analyzed by analytical method. Based on results mentioned above, a new transverse coefficient was proposed to evaluate the influence of the transverse edge effect on the cross-flux density distribution. The influences of the motor configurations and parameters on the transverse coefficient were also investigated. The 3-D finite-element method was adopted to verify the accuracy of the presented analytical method.
