This paper describes a generalized model of the single sided linear induction motor and its computer simulation using MATLAB/SIMULINK. Constructional details of various sub-models for the single sided linear induction motor are given and their implementation in SIMULINK is outlined. SLIM is studied using the simulation model developed. Simulation of the single sided linear induction machine is well documented in computer hardware and software, new simulation packages which are faster and more user friendly are now available. This paper discusses the use of one such product, the SIMULINK software of MATLAB, in the dynamic modelling of the SLIM.
