Dynamic Simulation Of The Novel Xlev Magnetically Levitated Conveyor Vehicle
In this paper a novel magnetic levitation system XLEV is presented. It is designed as a bearing system for a conveyor vehicle with very high demands on operational availability and conveyor speed combined with a minimum need for maintenance. After presentation of the mode of operation a simulation environment is described for the analysis of the dynamic behaviour. Appropriate control algorithms together with the special features of the XLEV system enable a magnetically levitated vehicle to pass a passive switch without interrupting the levitation state. Simulation results prove this remarkable feature.
