The Position and Speed Detection Technology Based on Loop Cable for Low-Speed Maglev Train

Part of the Springer Tracts in Mechanical Engineering book series (STME)


The method of linear asynchronous traction is adopted for the low-speed Maglev train. The primary winding of linear motor is installed at the bottom of the train bogie, while the rail is the secondary winding. The ability of effectively and accurately obtaining speed information would relate to the traction efficiency of the motor. Since different Maglev trains have different structures, and the position detection methods are distinguishing, the mode of low-speed maglev trains that use the asynchronous traction way with short stators is selected [1]. The basic principles of the position and speed detection method based on the loop cable are described as follows.
