FEM Dynamics Simulation of Controlled-PM LSM Maglev Vehicle
The Maglev vehicle can be driven without wheels and with minimizing levitation power losses, by using a long-stator type linear synchronous motor (LSM) with controlled permanent-magnets (PM’s), which has the integrated functions of LSM propulsion and attractive-mode levitation1. To reduce costs of the long-stator armature rails, it is practically important to simplify constructing the rails2.
