Abstract-In this study, we attempt to analyze characteristics of Single-sided Linear Induction Motor with a short primary member and a complicated secondary structure, which consists of solid-plate conductor section and a winding one. For this purpose, electromagnetic field analysis by 3-D FEM is combined with electric circuit analysis and motion equation. Here, electric circuit analysis involves the primary and secondary windings. Focusing on the distributions of secondary induced current and thrust force, we discuss various transient phenomena that develop at the boundary between different secondary structures. Finally, to suppress the aggravation of characteristic caused by the secondary structural transition, we improve the boundary.
