This special issue on linear-motor powered transportation covers both supporting technologies and innovative transport systems in various parts of the World, as this technology moves from the lab to commercial operations. There are many types of linear motors, but most of those discussed in these papers are the short primary linear induction motor (LIM) and the long primary linear synchronous motor (LSM). They are similar to their rotary counterparts, but the linear versions represent a more complex design challenge.
