  1. 1. Magnetically LevitatedMagnetically Levitated Trains (MagLev)Trains (MagLev) By Sai ganeshBy Sai ganesh
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4.
