The paper considers some problems of calculating major parameters and characteristics of a mechatronic system with a linear induction motor (LIM). It has been shown that LIM operating in the presence of traveling magnetic fields are widely used alongside other actuators. These motors allow for modular design because inductors may be made as independent modules. Then, by choosing the required number of inductors and their arrangement in a mechatronic system, a desired trajectory of transverse motion may be obtained. A theoretical model for LIM calculation, taking into account major assumptions about onedimensional magnetic field, is offered. Complex amplitude is expressed as the exponential function of a longitudinal coordinate of current volumetric density of the inductor. The above inductances as the parameters of dynamic equations may be used in further investigation of dynamics of mechatronic systems. However, in order to create optimal control systems for mechatronic systems with linear actuators, the major parameters and characteristics of a linear motor should be known. Therefore, the present investigation is aimed at developing methods for calculating the parameters of mechatronic systems with linear electric drives.
