LINEAR INDUCTION MOTOR RESEARCH: LINEAR INDUCTION MOTOR AND TEST VEHICLE DESIGN AND FABRICATION. VOLUME II, BOOK 1

A 2500-hp linear induction motor (LIM), a complete test vehicle, a propulsion control system, test instrumentation, and an onboard auxiliary power supply have been designed, fabricated, and checked out. The system was designed to operate at test speeds up to 250 mph on a standard-gauge railroad track bed fitted with an aluminum reaction rail (secondary member), at the Office of High Speed Ground Transportation Test Center, Pueblo, Colorado. Design criteria and supporting data for configuring the system are presented. Volume I provides background information, basic theory of operation, a discussion of program objectives, and a summary of all work performed. Volume II (two books) describes the design, development, and fabrication of the LIM, reaction rail, guidance system, LIM power supply, and the test vehicle. (Modified author abstract)
