An accurate estimation of flux linkage characteristics is very important during the preliminary design stage and high-performance control of linear switched reluctance motor (LSRM). In this paper, longitudinal and transversal end-effects of a double-side LSRM are studied using analytical method and finite element analysis (FEA). The estimation discrepancy introduced by both end-effects is presented respectively by investigating their sensitivities to machine parameters, such as excitation level, translator position, and stack length.
