Abstract

For high-temperature superconducting (HTS) maglev, an electromagnet guideway unit (EMGU) that can form an electromagnet guideway (EMG) with a small gap, or even no gap, between EMGUs has been designed. The longitudinal magnetic fields along a single EMGU and two EMGUs arranged in a line were first investigated through measurement and simulation. The experimentally measured data validated the simulation results from a three-dimensional (3D) EMGU model implemented in COMSOL Multiphysics, indicating that the model is reliable and can be used for further studies. The dynamic responses of a high-temperature superconducting (HTS) bulk above a single EMGU and two EMGUs arranged in a line, including the dynamic levitation force (LF) and traveling directional force (TDF), under different operating conditions were investigated through experiment and simulation using a segregated H-formulation model. The magnetic field and current density distributions inside the superconductor are affected by the external magnetic field generated by the EMGU and are responsible for the dynamic characteristics. Finally, the segmented instant excitation (SIE) mode was investigated through simulation, which shows it is feasible by coordinating the currents of EMGUs.
