MAGNETIC SUSPENSION CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR THE MBB HIGH SPEED TRAIN

The problem of designing the magnetic suspension system for a wheelless train with maximum speeds of up to 500 km/hr is discussed. Special attention is given to the modeling of rigid body and elastic modes as well as magnetic dynamics in the vehicle system. Disturbances from curves and grades, which are especially important, wind forces, track tolerances, accelerometer biases and instrument measurement errors are investigated. The paper compares a number of control synthesis techniques. Several design methods, such as decomposition, arbitrary dynamics and linear quadratic optimum control are applied.
