CONSTRUCTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF DC LINEAR MOTOR

A d-c linear motor consisting of vehicle-borne field magnets and wayside armature coils is characterized by simultaneous generation of lift and thrust. This paper reviews the systematic study of this propulsion system and the development of its components. Included in the investigation were high-speed performance, the control system, and upsizing the model experimental facility. Also studied were electromagnetic guidance, current-collection rollers, and electrodynamic levitation.
