The linear counterpart of a segmented-rotor reluctance motor is studied to assess the feasibility of its application in ground transportation. Reactance formulas for the segmented-rotor motor are adapted to the segmented-secondary linear motor, and its performance is calculated using the salient-pole synchronous-machine theory. A numerical example of a preliminary design and analysis is presented, and the pertinent characteristics of the linear reluctance motor for ground transportation are discussed.
