The derivation of the equivalent circuit for a single-sided linear induction motor (SLIM) is not straightforward, particularly if it includes longitudinal end effects from the cut-open primary magnetic path, transversal edge effects from the differing widths between the primary lamination and secondary sheet, and half-filled primary slots. This paper proposes an improved series equivalent circuit for this machine. The longitudinal end effects are estimated using three different impedances representing the normal, forward, and backward flux density waves in the air gap, whose two boundary conditions are deduced by introducing the conception of magnetic barrier surface. The transversal edge effects are accounted for by correction coefficient K̅t and air-gap flux density correction coefficient K̅̅b. Using the series circuit, the performance of the SLIM was assessed in a similar manner to a rotating induction machine. A 4-kW SLIM prototype was tested, which validated the simulation technique.
