## Conclusions

1. The coupling of the vehicle oscillation equation and the equations for the currents in the guideway structures must be taken into account in the stability analysis of vertical oscillations in an electrodynamic suspension system with a discrete guideway structure.

2. The reported calculations indicate that vertical oscillations are unstable over a wide range of travel velocities. Consequently, the execution of steady-state vehicle motion requires vertical stabilization of the system.

3. Effective stabilization can be achieved by means of a dynamic vibration damper. Even for a small relative mass ζ =0.025 of the optimally tuned damper the perturbed motion decays rapidly.
