FORCE ON CURRENT COILS MOVING OVER A CONDUCTING SHEET WITH APPLICATION TO MAGNETIC LEVITATION

The use of Fourier transformation techniques provides accurate integral equations for the forces exerted on d.c. polygonal coils moving above conductor plates. These equations are used to study the proposed high-speed magnetic levitation transport. A large amount of numerical data was analysed with a view to determining mutual dependence of the parameters of the system, such as speed, coil shape, coil arrangement, air gap, thickness of the track, conductivity, permeability. With regard to possible applications, the authors draw a comparison between the supra-conductor system (repulsion) and the ferromagnetic attraction system.
