A small high-temperature superconducting maglev propeller system model has been designed and constructed. It mainly consists of a permanent-magnet track, a superconducting maglev vehicle, two linear motors, an automatic controlling electric circuit, and a spring. The linear motors can be powered by a single- or three-phase power supply. It can be used to do many experiments in different fields of science and technology for polytechnic instruction. Some experiments such as the effect of capacitive load in the electrocircuit, the voltage of the power supply, and the initial moving speed of the maglev model on the total mechanical work of the vehicle, which is done by the linear motors in single-phase power supply, have been carried out. Results will be discussed in detail.
