How maglev train work
There are two primary types of maglev technology:
electromagnetic suspension (EMS) uses the attractive magnetic force of a magnet beneath a rail to lift the train up.
electrodynamic suspension (EDS) uses a repulsive force between two magnetic fields to push the train away from the rail.
Another experimental technology, which was designed, proven mathematically, peer reviewed, and patented, but is yet to be built, is the magnetodynamic suspension (MDS), which uses the attractive magnetic force of a permanent magnet array near a steel track to lift t ...more
