18th International Symposium on Applied Electromagnetics and Mechanics (ISEM) 2017, Chamonix, France, 3 - 06 September 2017
In this paper, an electromagnetic analysis study of a double-sided motor topology is conducted both for conventional and Halbach array magnet assemblies. By means of the analyses, the critical performance criteria of linear motor are investigated. The designs are verified experimentally. The findings show that Halbach array magnet assembly type linear motor has superiority for force production and lightness of design.
