Title: The Physics of SERAPHIM

Abstract

The Segmented Rail Phased Induction Motor (SERAPHIM) has been proposed as a propulsion method for urban maglev transit, advanced monorail, and other forms of high speed ground transportation. In this report we describe the technology, consider different designs, and examine its strengths and weaknesses.
