Permanent magnet (PM)-type transverse flux linear motors (TFLMs) are electromagnetic devices which can develop directly powerful linear motion. The unique configuration makes power of output higher than longitudinal motors, but also it makes characteristic analysis difficulties. This paper deals with an effective analysis of PM-type TFLM by 3-D equivalent magnetic circuit network method (EMCNM). This paper presents optimum design of PM-type TFLM to reduce the weight of the machine with the constraints of thrust and detent force using response surface methodology (RSM). RSM was well adapted to make the analytical model of the minimum weight with constraints of thrust and detent forces and enable the objective function to be easily created and a great deal of the time in computation to be saved. Therefore, it is expected that the proposed optimization procedure using RSM can be easily utilized to solve the optimization problem of electric machines.
