Transient modeling of multiparallel tubular linear induction motors
R. Haghmaram , A. Shoulaie
In this paper, we model single and multiparallel generator driven tubular linear induction motors by the current filament method, in transient and dynamic states. Using a previously written code for transient and dynamic modeling of a single motor, we simulate a sample motor noted in a reference paper and compare the results with those obtained by using our current filament method. This comparison confirms the accuracy of our method. Finally, we model a system of two or more parallel motors and show that it is feasible to achieve greater muzzle velocities by paralleling certain designs of motors.
