CONTROL AND SPEED-CHARACTERISTICS OF MAGNETICALLY LEVITATED VEHICLES OF ATTRACTING-MAGNET TYPE

A design procedure for the suspension device suited for the magnetically levitated vehicle of attracting-magnet type is proposed. In this study, the roughness of the guideway surface is represented by power spectral density and the response characteristics of the levitation control system are analyzed theoretically and experimentally. The design procedure proposed is applicable to electromagnets of any dimensions. The authors have also confirmed by numerical calculation for the 5-ton model vehicle that the model car is able to run at 100 to 200 Km/h without using a secondary suspension device and three times as fast if a secondary suspension device is used. Power consumption characteristics and the required capacity of the power source have also been clarified.
