LINEAR INDUCTION MOTOR RESEARCH. VOLUME I. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

A 2500-hp linear induction motor (LIM), a complete test vehicle, a propulsion control system, test instrumentation, and an onboard auxiliary power supply have been designed, fabricated, and checked out. The system was designed to operate at test speeds up to 250 mph on a standard-gauge railroad track bed fitted with an aluminum reaction rail (secondary member), at the Office of High Speed Ground Transportation Test Center, Pueblo, Colorado. Design criteria and supporting data for configuring the system are presented. (Author)
