    The characteristics, contingent on magnetic suspension technology, and the research results obtained by now open up the possibility that today's long-distance transport can be improved using the magnetic suspension ground transport system. Besides efficiency and profitability, low influence on the environment, considerable preservation of resources, and a high degree of safety are important develo... View full abstract»

    The electromagnetic support and guidance system for magnetic levitation railways consists of electromagnets on the vehicle and an armature rail on the track. The experience gained in the operation of the experimental vehicles built so far have lead to the development of a modular structure of the support and guidance system which uses the "magnetic wheel" as a self-contained functional unit. This ... View full abstract»

  • Control systems for operating the long stator Maglev vehicle TR 05

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):23 - 34
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (7992 KB)

    Operation of long stator Maglev transport systems requires instrumentation for remote control of the propulsion and for monitoring the actual operating conditions of the vehicle subsystems as well as of the propulsion itself. An additional control system is needed to provide data on instantaneous vehicle position and speed. To fulfill safety requirements, a self-contained unit has to monitor the l... View full abstract»

    HSST is an acronym for high-speed surface transport and is the trade name of the vehicle levitated by the attractive electromagnets and propelled by the linear induction motor (LIM) developed by Japan Air Lines. Two test vehicles have been designed, manufactured, and flight-tested. The first test vehicle, HSST-01, marked a maximum speed of 307.8 km/h on a 1300-m long test track in February, 1978, ...

    Mag-Transit is a unique combination of magnetic levitation and propulsion for people mover applications. Linear induction motors are used for levitation, propulsion, braking, and guidance. Since there are a minimum of moving parts there is a potential for a substantial increase in system reliability and availability as compared to conventional systems. Modern solid-state technology provides the ca... View full abstract»

    The power conditioning for a magnetically levitated linear-motor propelled test vehicle is described. Control circuits have been developed to provide a constant air gap for levitation and improved damping of lateral motion due to force disturbances. Transistorized magnet drivers supply the required magnet current. A longitudinal control system with programmed limits on the second and third derivat... View full abstract»

    A summary of an experimental research project to evaluate a single-sided linear induction motor (SLIM) as an integrated suspension/ propulsion system (ISPS) for guided ground transportation vehicles is presented. Experimental results for rotating wheel tests of a full size section of a SLIM are presented. Emphasis is given to an application in the speed range of 200 to 500 km/h, however an extensi...

    Four leading theories of linear induction motors (LIM's) are applied to the analysis of test data on the linear induction motor research vehicle (LIMRV). Computer models are exercised to demonstrate the operating regions over which the different finite size effects become significant. Each model is seen to yield a reasonable description of LIM performance within the limitations imposed by the mode... View full abstract»

  • Comparison of combined versus separate lift/propulsion systems

    The notion of using the magnetic attractive force of a single-sided linear induction motor (SLIM) for suspension of a vehicle has recently received some attention. There is, therefore, some interest in determining how such a combined suspension/propulsion system would compare to separate lift and propulsion. Weight requirements of transverse flux dc lift magnets are calculated as a function of veh... View full abstract»

    A new voice scrambling method for mobile communication is proposed. The principle is to invert the voice sample polarity selectively according to the scrambling code, smooth it with a low-pass filter, and feed it to the radio transmitter. To utilize the principle, the necessary techniques such as filtering, synchronizing and scrambling code design, are described. The whitened spectrum of the scram... View full abstract»

    In a multistation simulcast digital radio paging system, each base station transmits the same RF signal simultaneously with the resulting efficient frequency utilization and simplified receiver design. In this system a paging receiver in the overlapping area receives several RF signals transmitted from different base stations. When frequency-shift keying (FSK) is used as a modulation method, exper... View full abstract»

    Future automatic highway systems should operate at high capacities (≥3600 vehicles/lane/h) over a range of highway speeds (13-26.8 m/s). Under such conditions it would be impossible to eliminate accidents. Here, a methodology to ascertain the severity of one especially critical accident, multivehicle collisions resulting from the emergency braking of a platoon of automatically controlled, cl...
