LIM GUIDANCE CONTROL SYSTEMS

The feasibility of control systems for positioning the LIM with respect to the reaction rail without physical contact is examined. Preliminary design analyses are made for several representative systems. Systems for use with both a ferrous or composite reaction rail and a nonferrous rail are examined and comparisons of system performance are made. A comprehensive performance criterion is developed. Recommendations for future investigations are made. (Author)
