CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR OPERATING THE LONG STATOR MAGLEV VEHICLE TR 05

Operation of long stator Maglev transport systems requires instrumentation for remote control of the propulsion and for monitoring the actual operating conditions of the vehicle subsystems as well as of the propulsion itself. An additional control system is needed to provide data on instantaneous vehicle position and speed. To fulfill safety requirements, a self-contained unit has to monitor the limit values of vehicle velocity. A control system has been designed and manufactured for the TR 05 to perform these operations. It includes a slotted waveguide for wide-band transmission (0.8 GHz), a noncontact counting system which detects the teeth and slots of the stator, and inductive sensors working against trackside marks for the purpose of safe speed limit control. The system is described in detail.
