This folder includes code for replicating numerical experiments that are presented in the following technical report:
Xin Niu. 'Modeling and Design Analysis of a Permanent Magnet Linear Synchronous Generator.' Technical Report UIUC-ESDL-2013-01, August 2013.
This report is included in this folder as well. A synchronous linear generator model is presented in the report and used to analyze power take-off performance for a heaving buoy wave energy converter. The dynamic model is implemented in MATLAB.
