The objective of this paper is to present an original study for optimizing the size of the LongitudinalFlux Double-Sided Linear Switched Reluctance Motor (LSRM) under thermal and weight constraints. The performance is evaluated taken into account duty cycle operating conditions and thermal restrictions. The proposed approach couples Finite Element Analysis for magnetic propulsion force computation and Lumped Parameter Thermal Network for thermal transient analysis. The LSRMs design parameters are characterized by the number of phases and by their size denoted by the pole stroke. The operating conditions are the current density, the duty cycle and the admissible temperature rise of the insulation system. The grid search algorithm is used for solving the optimization problem. From the results, with the help of a novel multivariable optimization chart, a set of optimal configurations regarding to miniaturizations and downsizing of LSRMs is provided.
