Research achievements in a high speed attraction type magnetic levitation vehicle experimental system are reported. The high speed attraction type magnetic levitation vehicle constitutes a typical long stator linear synchronous motor. The study on levitation and propulsive electromagnetic fields is of great importance and is studied. Owing to the influence of the stator grooves and the material discontinuousness, the magnetic field distribution is very complex to be analyzed in analytical forms. The magnetic fields in the air gap are determined using the finite element method. The levitation force and thrust produced by the levitation magnetic field and the propulsive magnetic field are calculated. They are found to vary following the change of the air gap and exciting current. A magnetic field strength measurement system based on a hall sensor is designed. Experimental results are compared with the results from the magnetic field analysis.
