The continuous spectrums of the amplitudes of the apparent, active and reactive power are calculated according to expressions (10)-(12).
3) According to the obtained expressions, it is possible to calculate the characteristics of the braking force and power of the linear induction motor, which appear due to the separate elementary component of the continuous spectrums with any frequency [alpha].
From the amplitudes of the continuous spectrum were derived the braking currents [[j.
