CONCERNING A FEW MYTHS LINKED TO THE USE OF LINEAR MOTORS AT HIGH SPEED

SUR QUELQUES MYTHES LIES A L'UTILISATION DES MOTEURS LINEAIRES EN TRACTION A GRANDE VITESSE

The author notes that the only prototype of linear motor having recently exceeded the speed of 410 km/h, is fitted to a vehicle on rails. In spite of the rare experience gained, he discards the "myths" linked to the pretended difficulties in the design or realization of such motors and examines objectively the various questions raised by the use of high speed linear motors, as well as the answers which can be advanced at the present time, without falling prey to the "technique fiction". Among the main data of the problem, the author dwells especially on the following factors: speed, power and consumption, and approaches then the corresponding choice criteria in the electric and mechanical fields.
