The paper presents a new technique in the field of magnetic levitation used in conjunction with linear propulsion systems, which uses combined generation of forces for levitation, propulsion, and guidance. Main feature is the application of a synchronous linear motor with an active guide-way integrated into the suspension system. As an immediate consequence of the twofold utilisation of the magnetic field, substantial savings in materials and power requirement are obtained. A pilot plant set up to test the concept is described.
