In this paper, we propose partial adoption of wound secondary members in Single-sided Linear Motors with short primary member. Adopting this scheme in sections where the high driving or braking force is required, desirable performance can be obtained by controlling secondary resistances. Here, we deal with the various scheme of primary and secondary winding connection in the proposed scheme. Further, by using the three-dimensional analysis, we also clarify various transient phenomena at the time when the primary crosses the boundary between the solid-plate secondary section and the wound secondary one. As a result, independently short-circuited connection is appropriate for the secondary winding owing to its superior performance and simple structure. And also, parallel connection is appropriate for the primary winding owing to its stable transient performance when the primary crosses a boundary of different secondary structures. Moreover, we propose a novel boundary structure, which yields stable transient performances.
