Abstract
In this work, 4 structural configurations are pro-
posed, and analyzed, to be used as linear switched reluctance
generators with tubular topology. For the 4 models under
assessment, inductance change with the mover part position is
assessed to quantify the machine capabilities as generator. This
evaluation is supported by a 2D FEM analysis based software
through which are determined the inductance values at different
alignment conditions as well as the magnetic flux densities for
the referred alignment conditions.
