Maglev systems and magnetic bearings using the pinning force in High Tc Superconductor (HTSC) have been highlighted. From the viewpoint that the pinning force can be considered as a synchronizing force, we have started to study on a new motor using HTSC bulk. A basic experiment of propulsion and guidance operations has been carried out on the armature guideway in the water tank, by the help of a model ship consisting of a new HTSC linear synchronous motor (LSM). It is successfully confirmed that the pinning force is utilized as a synchronizing force. Favorable propulsion and guidance have been achieved without guidance control only by trajectory control of propulsion motion.
