This paper deals with an electromagnetic analysis and control parameter estimation of a moving-coil linear oscillatory actuator (MCLOA). Analytical solutions for electromagnetic characteristics of the MCLOA are obtained from transfer relations derived in terms of a magnetic vector potential and two-dimensional (2D) rectangular coordinate systems. And then, on the basis of 2D analytical solutions, control parameters such as the thrust constant, the back-emf constant, and winding inductances are estimated. Finally, analytical results for both electromagnetic characteristics and control parameters of the MCLOA are validated extensively by finite element analyses. In particular, test results such as static thrust, resistance, and inductance measurements are given to confirm the analyses.
