LINEAR INDUCTION MOTOR RESEARCH VEHICLE REACTION RAIL CURRENT AND AIRGAP FLUX DISTRIBUTION TEST

Special instrumentation was installed on the LIMRV reaction rail at the Pueblo, Colorado, Transportation Test Center and vehicle test runs were made to acquire and record information on secondary currents, airgap flux, and sidebar voltages. The data thus obtained is shown in the form of oscillographic tracings. Medium-speed (approx 85 mph) and high-speed (approx 190 mph) passes over the instrumented section of reaction rail were executed. Test findings are presented in a form suitable for detailed study and evaluation by interested analysts.
