MODEL OF ELECTRODYNAMIC SUSPENSION TRAIN

MODELL EINER ELEKTRODYNAMISCHEN SCHWEBEBAHN

City-connecting transport systems, which are to operate at higher speeds than 500 km/h. can only be realized by a levitation train on electrodynamic principle. In this case the power must be transmitted to the vehicle through the air gap. The reason for this is the difficulty of current transmission by conducting rails at so high speeds. A further reason is the problem of transporting goods and passengers. The placement of aggregates for propulsing, levitation and stabilization in the vehicle causes such a high weight that vehicle's payload must be reduced to nearly zero. A double-sided linear electric machine, which is placed in the track and which is constructed so that it provides simultaneously propulsing - (braking)- levitation- and stabilization-forces, accomplishes all conditions given above.
