Abstract

This paper explains the basis features of a Magnetically Levitated Vehicle, which consider the magnetic suspensions, propulsion and guidance. There are basically two modes of magnetic suspension, utilizing either the repulsive force between vehicle-borne superconductive magnets and induced currents in conductive guideway components i.e. Electrodynamic suspension system (EDS) or the attractive force between iron core electromagnets and ferromagnetic rails i.e. Electromagnetic suspension system (EMS). Propulsion is achieved by linear motors instead of conventional motors. In EMS mode guidance may be provided by magnetic guidance forces generated by interaction of separate set of electromagnets and in EDS system the guidance is provided by the principle of null-flux which is achieved by cross coupling the conducting coil mounted on the guideway.
