VEHICLES FOR SUPERCONDUCTING MAGLEV SYSTEM ON YAMANASHI TEST LINE

A superconductive magnetic levitation Maglev) system in Japan has been developed to an extent that basic technology is established on Miyazaki Maglev Test Track and now, for the purpose of practical technology development, the construction of Yamanashi Test Line is underway. Yamanashi Test Line is the last stage for making sure the possibility of commercialization of Maglev system. We decided the configuration of vehicles which will run at a speed of over 500 km/h on Yamanashi Test Line and have already started a detailed design of vehicles. This paper describes the lightweight bodies and lightened bogies with elastic support of superconducting magnets (SCM) for vehicles of Yamanashi Test Line. Linear synchronous motors, details of SCM and on-board power source were excluded from the article.
