  • Magnetically LevitatedMagnetically Levitated Trains (MagLev)Trains (MagLev) By Sai ganeshBy Sai ganesh
  • What are MagLev trains?What are MagLev trains?  MagLev uses Electromagnetic Propulsion.MagLev uses Electromagnetic Propulsion.  Trains are thrust forward by positively andTrains are thrust forward by positively and negatively charged magnets.negatively charged magnets.  The train floats on a cushion of airThe train floats on a cushion of air eliminating friction.eliminating friction.
  • MagLev “Guideways” or TracksMagLev “Guideways” or Tracks  Track repels magnets on undercarriage ofTrack repels magnets on undercarriage of train, sending the train forward.train, sending the train forward.  Train levitates between 1 and 10 cmTrain levitates between 1 and 10 cm above guideway.above guideway.
  • MagLev vs. Conventional TrainsMagLev vs. Conventional Trains MagLev TrainsMagLev Trains Conventional TrainsConventional Trains No Friction = LessNo Friction = Less MaintenanceMaintenance Routine MaintenanceRoutine Maintenance NeededNeeded No Engine = No fuelNo Engine = No fuel requiredrequired Engine requires fossilEngine requires fossil fuelsfuels Speeds in excess ofSpeeds in excess of 300 mph300 mph Speeds up to 110 mphSpeeds up to 110 mph
