The movement of a linear induction motor (LIM) causes eddy currents in the secondary conductor sheet at the entry and the exit of the primary core. The eddy currents of the sheet tend to resist sudden flux variation, allowing only gradual change along the airgap. Hence, the so-called 'end effect' causes not only the losses but also airgap flux profile variation changes depending on the speed. In this work, an equivalent circuit model of LIM is developed following Duncan's per phase model. It is then transformed into a synchronous reference frame which is aligned with the secondary flux. Also, a field orientation control scheme is developed which accounts for the end effect. The validity of the proposed LIM model is demonstrated by comparing experimental and simulated voltage current relations. With the proposed control scheme, the (secondary) flux-attenuation problem due to the end effect is shown to be resolved in the high-speed range.
