The status of the technical development for the Yamanashi Maglev test line

Abstract

The superconducting maglev system has been under development for the past 25 years in Japan. In last 17 years, running test on the 7 km Miyazaki test track has yielded important data for the maglev system development. In 1990, the maglev system gained the status of one of the national - funded projects in Japan. The government authorized the 42.8 km test line in Yamanashi Prefecture and R and D entered into a new phase. This new test line is planned to go through near Tokyo on the supposed Chuo line, which is expected to be a new important line connecting Tokyo and Osaka, the central part of Japan. This fact clearly explains the role of Yamanashi test line in the future. The construction of the Yamanashi test line is energetically promoted, to start running tests in spring of 1997. The situation of the technical development of the Yamanashi test line is reviewed here. (orig.)
