Abstract

The concept of electromagnetic vehicle suspension is explained and the magnets for the British Rail 3 tonne experimental vehicle are described. The design steps and prototype magnet test results for the 8 tonne Birmingham vehicle are given followed by construction details of the production magnets. The heart of the system is the electronic control and the basic concepts are discussed together with the functions of the transducers required to control and stabilise the suspension. The transducers, and Power and Control electronics hardware are described together with the protection and fault monitoring systems.
