CONTROL ASPECTS OF A TRACKED MAGNETIC LEVITATION HIGH SPEED TEST VEHICLE

The control system of the high speed test vehicle KOMET is examined. The control hardware configuration consisting of digital computer, interface, sensors, magnet drivers and magnets is described. Control system synthesis is performed based on the state space approach and the classical approach of the z-transform. It leads to various control concepts, which are evaluated with regard to their responses to guideway irregularities, external forces and their sensitivity to plant parameter variations. Results from high speed testing are evaluated with regard to system responses, power requirements, and loss in magnetic force due to eddy currents.
