PRELIMINARY DESIGN AND TEST OF LINEAR INDUCTION TRACTION MOTORS AND SUSPENSION SYSTEMS

The report presents some very preliminary calculations and experiments investigating linear induction motors for high speed ground transportation. An iron field slotted rotor configuration is proposed for improved performance. The possibility of combined magnetic suspension and propulsion are discussed and found to require pole pieces that are on the order of weight of the vehicle. (Author)
