Switched reluctance motors have been extensively studied by researchers for their unparalleled advantages in wide range of applications. The linear versions of it, possessing similar attributes and prospects, have been developed in recent years. Owing to their frugal design, robust built and high force density, the linear switched reluctance motors (LSRM) has had significant stages of development and optimization. The flexibility in design and operation makes LSRM a prime contender for any linear motor-actuator application. This paper provides a bird’s eye view across its developmental stages and its various aspects in design, analysis and control. The following content discusses the salient points of research and the contribution by researchers in this field.
