ANALYSIS OF SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNETIC LEVITATION AND LINEAR SYNCHRONOUS MOTOR PROPULSION FOR HIGH SPEED GUIDED GROUND TRANSPORTATION

This report describes progress made during 1973 in analysis of the maglev system, involving the use of superconducting magnets for electrodynamic suspension and guidance and for linear synchronous propulsion for high speed guided ground vehicles. Technical and operational characteristics of a system with vehicles cruising at 300 mph along the Canadian corridor have been investigated. Designs for various aspects of the maglev system are compiled. The propulsion system has been analyzed and a design for the maglev vehicle is given. The test facility at Queens University is described.
