MAGLEV LEVITATION TRAIN

MAGNETIC LEVITATION TECHNOLOGY🚄

The first ideas about magnetic levitation (MAGLEV) have been developed during the early 1900s. The magnetic force is the key point of this descovery since it lifts, propels and guides the train over a guideway.

MAGNLEV TRAIN WITH MAGNETIC TECHNOLOGY

There are two different types of maglevs:

BY LEVITATION – ELECTROMAGNETS SUSPENSION (EMS): It works thanks to the attractive force between magnets. Indeed, the magnets are placed on the side of the train and on the guideway and they allow the train to levitate.

BY PROPULSION – ELECTRODYNAMIC SUSPENSION(EDS): the magnets are used to repel the train from the guideway. These magnets are cooled and conducting.

Advantages of Maglev: the maintenance is less expensive and when the train is running it’s less noisy than a traditional one. In addition, it doesn’t pollute since it doesn’t have a standard engine.
Disadvantages of Maglev: the production cost is high.


Did you know that the first commercial Maglev train has been launched in Shanghai in 2004?🤯
