The linear excursion is within a few centimeters. As prime movers, free piston Stirling engines (SEs), linear internal combustion single- piston engines, and direct wave energy engines (with meter range excursions) are proposed. So far, the Stirling engine [1] has been used for spacecraft and for residential electric energy generation electric vehicles. While rotary motion electric generators are multiphase machines, in general, the linear motion alter- nators (LMAs) tend to be single-phase machines, because the linear oscillatory motion imposes a change of phase sequence for change in the direction of motion. A three-phase LMA may be built of three single- phase LMAs. ( Figure 12.1 ) [1]. The linear internal combustion engine (ICE) was recently proposed for series hybrid

The dynamics and control will be treated once for all configurations. A special kind of linear motion generator with progressive motion to provide on-board energy on maglev (magnetically levitated) vehi- cles with active guideway is also briefly discussed. 12.2 LMA Principle of Operation PM-LMAs with oscillatory motion are, generally, single-phase machines with harmonic motion: (12.1) The electromagnetic force (emf) is, in general, (12.2) where is the PM flux linkage in the phase coils. With Equation 12.1 in Equation 12.2, (12.3) To obtain a sinusoidal emf waveform, Equation 12.3 yields the following: (12.4) FIGURE 12.1 Stirling engine — linear alternator.
