Super high-speed magnetically levitated system approaches: practical use

Technical Report:

Abstract

The JR-MAGLEV, utilizing superconducting magnets, has been under development since 1970 with the manufacturing of a succession of trial vehicles such as the LSM 200, ML 100, ML 500 and MLU 001. In 1979, the ML 500 trial vehicle achieved a world-record speed of 517 km/h. This was followed by the MLU 001, which recorded a speed of 350 km/h as a 3-car formation in 1986 and 400 km/h as a 2-car formation with passengers in 1987. As a result of the satisfactory results obtained by the MLU 001, a prototype vehicle for commercial service, the MLU 002, was manufactured in March 1988 and is now under testing at the Miyazaki test track, with the aim of achieving a target operational speed of 420 km/h.
