THE DYNAMIC BEHAVIOUR OF A LOW-SPEED ELECTRO-MAGNETIC SUSPENSION

A control system has been designed, constructed and tested which provides a suspension for a low-speed transport vehicle. The technical concepts have been investigated in great depth. It has been shown that the effects of the non-linearities inherent in the hardware can be minimised. Over a track with irregularities characterised by a secondary railway line the ride in the vehicle is equivalent to that obtained in conventional, modern urban transport vehicles. The physical constraints on the control system specification of the track has been shown to be suitable. of the track has been shown to be suitable.
