The work developed in this paper deals with modeling and study of Linear Switched Reluctance Motor (LSRM), in particular the end-effect phenomenon. The studied actuator is a double-sided linear switched reluctance motor with an active translator and passive stator with a plate geometry. End effect is a very important phenomenon that affects the phase in the extremity in the linear motor and gives phases with different characteristics. This effect is always neglected in many research works or studied using 3D Finite Element Analysis. The proposed model in this paper takes into account end-effect for a better description of this motor. The confrontation between the simulation of the proposed model and experimental results give a good correspondence.
