THE IRONLESS SYNCHRONOUS LINEAR MOTOR AS VEHICLE DRIVE IN A NOVEL HIGH-SPEED TRANSPORT SYSTEM

The authors describe the design, characteristics, mode of action and control of the ironless synchronous linear motor and also the experimental work on two test rigs. The test results confirmed both the motor theory evolved and the adopted method of calculation. Following the proof of the suitability of the motor as a drive unit in a high-speed transport system, the work is being continued in large-scale tests at the Erlangen circular route, and it is planned to carry out an investigation on the scale of a future commercial application. The tests take in experience in the fitting of the track coil, the control behaviour with the given vehicle dynamics, and the long-term behaviour of all motor components under the conditions of a full-scale test route. The results of the tests will add to the knowledge on the reliable and economical application of the ironless synchronous linear motor in a novel high-speed transport system of the future. The work on which this report is based was supported with funds from the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology within the framework of the research project TV7549.
