This paper presents the modelling of a moving coil actuator for use as an element in a High Redundancy Actuator (HRA). A single element model is derived from first principles and verified using experimental data. This model is subsequently used to describe an approach to deriving models of multi-element HRAs and determine the effect of a variety of faults, chosen to be appropriate for the electromagnetic technology, on the behaviour of multi-element assemblies.
