Abstract:
Linear induction machines currently play a relatively minor role in the industrial world. This is partly due to relatively high production costs, complexity of construction and the Inability to apply standard mass production techniques. The aim of this thesis is to investigate the design of linear machines that are cheaper and faster to produce, and that may easily be mass-produced This thesis principally concerns the use of concentrated winding linear stators. These are cheap and easy to manufacture and can be easily mass-produced. However, high levels of negative harmonics make them unsuitable for use with simple sheet rotors.
