POWER FEEDING CHARACTERISTICS OF GROUND-PRIMARY TYPE LINEAR MOTOR RAILWAYS

Magnetic levitation with linear motor propulsion can involve power supplied either to a stator or to a moving element. The linear synchronous motor is generally of a ground-primary type with power supplied to the stator. Switching of the power feed is essential in this system and significantly deteriorates linear motor characteristics, even though it depends also on related conditions. The phenomenon resembles the edge effect of the linear induction motor and can mean that the high efficiency and power factor of the linear synchronous motor is considerably reduced.
