Design and Optimization of UAQ4 Experimental Maglev Module
This paper presents the design of a novel superconducting levitated module for UAQ4 train whose feasibility has been successfully tested and confirmed in laboratory. The work concept of self-balancing “V” shaped levitation module is described and the results of levitation tests performed using a measurement set up are discussed. Lastly the levitation module performances are also carried out using numerical finite element analyses by varying the sideslip angle of the module and work system configuration.
