Abstract

A new modeling of transverse flux linear motor (TFLM) is proposed in this paper. The design consists of three separate stators and one common inner mover. The stators are fed by a three-phase alternating current, and the mover is excited by permanent magnets placed within it. The field distribution of the machine is investigated by using 3D finite element analysis and MagNet\(^{\circledR }\) software for electromagnetic simulation. The thrust force characteristics of three-phase TFLM are compared with the single- and two-phase models. It is shown that the average force is increased and the ripple effect of the thrust force is minimized as compared to either single- or two-phase model.
