Abstract

This paper presents a novel two-dimensional (2-D) planar switched reluctance motor (PSRM) for position control applications. The proposed 2-D planar motor has the advantages of simple mechanical construction, high reliability, and the ability to withstand hostile operating conditions. Due to the unique structure of the planar motor's magnetic circuit, there is very little coupling between the X-and Z-axis, and no decoupling compensation is needed. It is expected that this innovative SR planar motion system will be an ideal replacement for traditional X-Y tables in industrial automation applications.
