ON-BOARD CRYOGENIC SYSTEM FOR MAGNETIC LEVITATION OF TRAINS: CRYOGENIC SYSTEM OF EET

An experimental car based on electrodynamic levitation with superconducting magnets has been developed and manufactured by AEG, BBC, Siemens and other partners, together with Linde AG as the firm responsible for the on-board cryogenic system. This system has to cope with new conditions and cryogenic tasks. It can be characterized in principle by liquid helium heat exchanger units, compressors, transfer lines, rotatable and movable couplings and junctions. All transfer lines and couplings consist of three coaxial ducts for three different streams. This paper reports on processes and components. A brief description of the test results for the whole system under simulation conditions is given.
