Switched reluctance motors have been extensively studied by researchers for their unparalleled advantages in many applications. The linear versions have been developed around the world in the last couple of decades because of attributes similar to that of rotary switched reluctance motor(RSRM). Owing to their frugal design, robust built and high force density, the linear switched reluctance motor (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.
