Not Available PSA has experience in the manufacture of both transverse flux linear induction machines (termed TFMs) and in conventional longitudinal flux LIMs (LFMs). The application of linear motors for vertical elevators for Navy ships involves a combination of transverse flux and longitudinal flux machines. Specifically, the single-sided, self-levitating Magnetic River TFM is ideal for the horizontal movement applications and couples to a double-sided LFM for vertical lift capability with multiple lift stations. This in our experience combines the optimum characteristics for both machines for maximizing the power to weight ratio, power factor, efficiency and specific thrust. Herein is provided a baseline design for a 12,000 lb (5454 kg) lift system operating at a typical service speed of 10-20 m/s and yielding a baseline power rating of 1.07 Megawatts for a vertical thrust of 53,500 Newtons.
