eBook

- Identifies direct linear (translational) electric motion-progressive and oscillatory- control by electromagnetic forces as a main source of energy savings and increased productivity in various industries and transportation
- Reviews electromagnetic fundamentals of electromagnetic force production and classification of linear electric machines by principle and by application
- Contains ready-to-use knowledge for the analysis, design, control, testing, and ordering of linear electric machines, drives, and MAGLEVs
- Includes numerical examples and sample digital simulation and experimental results
- Discusses plunger solenoids, linear oscillatory motor/generators, and commercial and potential MAGLEV types

Based on author Ion Boldea’s 40 years of experience and the latest research, **Linear Electric Machines, Drives, and Maglevs Handbook** provides a practical and comprehensive resource on the steady improvement in this field. The book presents in-depth reviews of basic concepts and detailed explorations of complex subjects, including classifications and practical topologies, with sample results based on an up-to-date survey of the field.

Packed with case studies, this state-of-the-art handbook covers topics such as modeling, steady state, and transients as well as control, design, and testing of linear machines and drives. It includes discussion of types and applications—from small compressors for refrigerators to MAGLEV transportation—of linear electric machines. Additional topics include low and high speed linear induction or synchronous motors, with and without PMs, with progressive or oscillatory linear motion, from topologies through modeling, design, dynamics, and control.

With a breadth and depth of coverage not found in currently available references, this book includes formulas and methods that make it an authoritative and comprehensive resource for use in R&D and testing of innovative solutions to new industrial challenges in linear electric motion/energy automatic control.
