Abstract

The Marine-Express (ME) which is an amphibious superconducting Maglev train can run both on land and under the water. A unique method for levitation and propulsion for the ME which can be applied independently of train speeds has been proposed. The method is based on a new combined levitation-and-propulsion due to lift and thrust forces of linear synchronous motor (LSM) and can be carried out by the decoupled-control method proposed here. ME02 is the second experimental model of a unique LSM car designed to travel underwater based on the new theory. ME02 is a simulator for the ME running on land and underwater. The decoupled-control method is verified from dynamics simulations in ME02.
