Master lecture series: Linear and planar motors for high-precision systems

Learn all facets of voice‐coil actuators, linear coreless motors, linear iron‐core motors, linear induction motors and planar motors. Analyze linear motors in all aspects and learn to select and model an electric linear motor for different high-precision systems.

Subjects

  • Theory of electromagnetism
  • Voice coil‐actuators
  • Linear coreless motors
  • Iron‐core linear motors
  • Linear induction motors
  • Commutation and feedback linearization
  • Power amplifiers
  • Planar motors

Result

After the course the participants:

  • Understand the models, properties, and limitations of voice‐coil actuators, linear coreless motors, linear iron‐core motors, linear induction motors and planar motors. 
  • Can analyze linear motors in the full mechatronic context including power amplifiers, controllers and mechanics (including thermal) aspects.
  • Can obtain the properties of a permanent magnet linear motor system from experiments.
  • Can select and model an electrical linear motor for different mechatronic (high‐precision) systems
  • Can analyze and comment on a scientific papers on linear motors.

Intended for

Engineers (TU/HTO level) electrotechnics or physics, who are or will be involved in (some aspects of) the design and engineering of Linear Motors.

This master lecture series is open to participants PAO Techniek en Management. Regular students of the TU will attend the lecture series too. The lectures will be held in English.
