Abstract

In this paper, a double-sided stator tubular linear induction machine is presented, and its performance is discussed for possible use as a catapult in the electromagnetic acceleration of aircraft. Based on the use of the Fourier transform in the direction of the motion, a semianalytical model that is able to take into account the end effects due to the finite length of the stators is derived. The effectiveness of the model has been proven by comparison with a numerical analysis based on the finite-element method. The reported results obtained using the two methods show excellent agreement that makes the proposed model a valuable tool for a preliminary design of the device
