Abstract

The paper describes the specification, modelling, magnetic design, thermal characteristics and control of a novel, high acceleration (up to 82g) brushless permanent magnet linear actuator with Halbach array, for textile package winding applications. Development, optimisation and the construction of a prototype machine is discussed in detail. Experimental results demonstrate the realisation of the actuator and induced performance advantages afforded by the closed loop position control system.
