This paper presents the analysis of a linear actuator for high acceleration applications. In the analysis, four different topologies of a slotless tubular permanent magnet actuator (TPMA) are investigated. A unified semi-analytical solution for the magnetic field equations of the four topologies is derived in a two-dimensional axisymmetric coordinate system. Using these semi-analytical field equations, a time efficient analysis is performed on the magnetic field in the actuator. Two topologies showed to be favorable for high acceleration applications, one prototype is being built to validate the model.
