DYNAMIC ASPECTS OF PASSENGER CARRYING VEHICLES USING CONTROLLED D.C. ELECTROMAGNETS

The use of controlled dc electromagnetic suspension poses a number of special problems such as interaction through vehicle dynamics and different control loops, noncyclicity of the system and the choice of weighting matrices for high-order systems. In order to develop synthesis procedures for active feedback systems, it is necessary to take into account not only the static but the dynamic interactions between various degrees of freedom such as roll, pitch, yaw, lift and lateral displacement. Further, when controlled dc electromagnetic suspension is employed for passenger carrying vehicles a number of additional characteristics associated with vehicle dynamics must also be considered in addition to stability requirements. Some of these are suspension stiffness, acceleration levels due to guideway roughness and flexibility, damping and dynamic response.
