This paper deals with two types of variable reluctance machines, both having linear movement. There are in fact modular structures that can operate even if different kinds of faults occur. One of the presented machines will be a linear transverse flux reluctance machine, the other a tubular transverse flux reluctance machine. Both of them have the same operating principle, and, as it will be proved, many of the considerations done here are valid for both machines.

I. INTRODUCTION

movement studied so far is relatively small comparing to

the rotary structures [1]. The goal of the authors is to make

a presentation of two new topologies of such machines that

can be used in various applications requiring precise

positioning. The machines to be presented belong to the

class of the variable reluctance machines, without Fig. 1. The three-phase linear transverse flux reluctance

WITH LINEAR MOVEMENT

machine has two correspondents: a rotary structure and a

tubular one. So, considering for a linear machine its plane

of the movement, it can be noticed the above mentioned

aspect. If one folds a linear structure on the perpendicular

direction on the movement one a rotary variant of the

machine is obtained. On the other hand, if the same linear

structure is folded on the direction of the movement a

tubular variant results, having however a linear movement.

In this case, the initial linear transverse flux machine was

obtained as a combination between a rotary transverse flux Fig. 2. The three-phase linear transverse flux reluctance

machine with passive rotor and a stator with permanent machine without permanent magnets.

The second structure was obtained followind some Starting from the linear transverse flux reluctance

Both the stator and the rotor of this machine are realized

using magnetic (iron) pieces and non-magnetic ones. This

construction is possible because the machine is operating

based on the variable reluctance principle. Two advantages

are obtained in this way: a lower mass of the structure and

Fig. 4. The tubular transverse flux reluctance machine a cheaper machine.

The tubular machine has the same modular structure as the

linear variant [7]. As the linear variant, the tubular machine

has two major parts: the active and the passive armature.

For this machine the stator represents the active armature.

Only the iron core of the machine is presented, considering

that the excitation coils are placed in the slots of the stator.

The term “slot” has in this case a different signification

than at the linear machine where it meant the distance

between two succesive teeth.

At the tubular transverse flux machine, the teeth of the two

armatures are obtained by alternating the magnetic

elements with the non-magnetic ones. The modules of the

stator are distanced one from another by non-magnetic

materials like the ones used for the modules of the stator

and for the mobile armature. The condition they have to

meet is the same as in the case of the linear machine, which Fig. 8. Coils placed in the slots of the stator, wound around

One of the great advantages of the tubular machine is that

its stator is the same as the one of the induction machine. III. FAULT TOLERANT LINEAR TRANSVERSE FLUX

Concerning the windings of the tubular machine, here two The operating principle of these machine determines their

only a steel sheet on which the coil is wound was has a sinusoidal variation. Hence, one of the goals when

considered. designing such a machine will be to realize an initial

shifting corresponding to the maximum tangential force.

Besides that, a big number of modules would increase the

length of the machine.

For a given tooth pitch of the armatures, the positioning

step of the machine is obtained by imposing the number of

modules. At each particular structure, considering the

chosen tooth pitch, one must take into consideration the

above mentioned aspects. It must be underlined that in

modules.
