SupraTrans is an innovative transportation concept based on the principle of superconductive magnetic levitation. The aim of the project is to create a fully working prototype, which proves its ability for passenger transport by explicit consideration of the compatibility between systems for propulsion, safety, positioning, power supply, transport logistics and the levitation system itself. The SupraTrans technology uses the flux pinning in high temperature superconductors (HTS) to stabilize the lateral and vertical position of the vehicle on the magnetic track. This self-stabilizing system is the main advantage of the superconductive levitation in comparison to all other levitation systems, which need electronic control and power to keep a constant distance between the train and the track.
