  11. 11. Key Elements
  12. 12. Maglev Suspension Systems  Attractive force to levitate  Standard electromagnets  Coils only conduct electricity when power is present  Also used in Germany  Super-cooled  Superconducting electromagnets  Conduct electricity after the power supply is shut down  Ex. Blackout EMS System EDS System 12 Electromagnetic vs. Electrodynamics Suspension
  13. 13. Basic Structure 13 Magnetic poles Repel and Push Train Train remains suspended in the air when not moving Zero Emission
  14. 14. Basic Structure 14 Guidance Magnets prevents collision with rails during motion Linear Motors propel the train Direction of travel is reversed when stopping
