This paper addresses the nonlinear model implementation of a Linear Switched Reluctance Actuator (LSRA) in the MATLAB/ Simulink simulation package. The model is based in an already implemented motor model for the rotating machine, which was improved and adopted to be applied in the analysis of a linear actuator. Both the magnetic information from experimental data and results obtained from Finite Element Analysis (FEA) were used to perform that study. The model is used in the assessment of several control schemes.
