TRENDS IN SUPERCONDUCTIVITY RELATED TO ELECTROMAGNETIC SUSPENSION OF HSGT VEHICLES

The technology of superconductive magnets was studied because of their potential application to electromagnetic suspension of high speed ground transportation vehicles. The technology was observed to be in the classical period of rapid growth which follows a technological breakthrough. The liquid helium technology was also investigated because it is presently the most feasible technique to maintain the low temperatures required for superconductivity. The electromagnetic suspension system which was proposed for HSGT usage was found to be within the present state of the art except possibly for the proposed current density. (Author)
