ELECTRODYNAMICS OF FINITE WIDTH GUIDEWAY MAGLEV SYSTEMS IN AN INTEGRAL EQUATION FORMULATION

A completely general, system-independent integral equation for the eddy current density is used to study the electrodynamics of finite guideway repulsive maglev systems. For the first time a comparison of the transverse force measurements on a large-scale prototype vehicle (EET) with the theory is presented. The lateral displacement of the excitation magnet produces destabilizing transverse forces. The finite width of the guideway reduces the lift and increases the specific losses. The consequence is that for a given magnet width an adequate guideway overhang beyond the magnet width must be provided, so as not to suffer loss in the lift due to transverse edge effects and keep the lateral destabilizing force small.
