We have calculated magnetic field distribution and integral parameters for the slotted, five-phase, permanent-magnet tubular linear motor (PMTLM). We used a finite element (FE) model for the field analysis. We carried out the field analysis for different values of the exciting current and for variable mover position. To obtain experimentally the field distribution and its integral parameters, we developed and tested a physical model of the motor. We compared the calculation results with the measured ones and found a good conformity.
