The Central Jᴀᴘᴀɴ Railway Company and the Railway Technical Research Institute started working together to develop the SCMaglev in the 1970s. The magnetic attraction of moving items to the rail underlies the operation of maglev trains. The phrases “magnetic” and “levity” are basically combined to form the term “maglev.” A magnetic levitation system, also known as an electrodynamic suspension system, or EDS, is used to make the train appear to “float.”
The Maglev trains have been setting new world speed records for many years. The SCMaglev (superconducting maglev) in Jᴀᴘᴀɴ is the world’s fastest train, at top speeds of 600 km/h. There are now six commercial Maglev train systems running all over the world. Three are in Cʜɪɴᴀ, two are in Sᴏᴜᴛʜ Kᴏʀᴇᴀ, and one is in Jᴀᴘᴀɴ. The SCMaglev MagLev train from Jᴀᴘᴀɴ, in contrast, is far superior and operates more effectively than the other trains. Given that it moves at a speed of more than 600 km/h, it is known as the “fastest train.”
The electromagnets are formed by twisting two sets of cross-connected metal coils into a “figure eight” configuration inside the rails or guideways. Superconducting bogies, which are superconducting electromagnets, are installed in the train itself. The wheels of the train are on the ground when it stops. In order for the magnets underneath the train to make contact with those of the guideway, the train slowly starts to move on these wheels.
The magnetic force is strong enough to raise the train 100 millimeters (4 inches) off the ground once it ʜɪᴛs 150 kilometers per hour (93 miles per hour), eliminating friction and enabling ever-higher speeds. The train is propelled ahead and kept in the guideway by the same magnetic forces that raise it up. The ride is comfortable and the train is quite safe thanks to the same technology that Tesla’s Hyperloop uses.
