UM MagLev

istory Simulation of MagLev Dynamics


Program package Universal Mechanism includes a specialized module UM MagLev for analysis of 3D dynamics of magnetic levitation vehicles. The module includes additional tools integrated into the program kernel.

UM MagLev contains the following main components: 

  • tools for generation and visualization of guideway structure (bridge) geometry;
  • tools for generation of guideway roughness (irregularities);
  • mathematical models of levitation and guidance magnets:
    • spring/damper;
    • single pole magnet:

    • external EMS and EDS models with Matlab/Simulink and built-in tools such as UM Control / Block Editor.
  • flexible or rigid guideway;
  • set of typical dynamic experiments.

UM MagLev allows the user to solve the following problems:

    • linear analysis;

    • linear vibration response;
    • eigenvalue and eigenvector problem;
    • сhoice of levitation and guidance control parameters and analysis of stability;
    • сomputation of root loci;
    • nonlinear simulation analysis;

    • estimation of vibrations due to track roughness;
    • estimation of vehicle dynamic performances on curving;
    • parametric optimization of vehicle elements according to various criteria.
