ANALYSIS OF A COMBINED ATTRACTION-MAGLEV-PROPULSION SYSTEM FOR A HIGH SPEED VEHICLE

This document presents the results of a study of a combined levitation-propulsion system for a high speed ground transportation vehicle incorporating a single-sided linear induction motor as the levitation-propulsion unit. The system is first synthesized in accordance with design constraints and subsequently examined in detail. Time responses and rms values of various parameters of interest are calculated. The conclusion of this preliminary investigation is that such a system is feasible and deserves further study.
