In November 2020, a master’s thesis was started at the IEM on the topic of “Development and Construction of a Highspeed Actuator System and Track for a Maglev Train Model on a Scale of 1:20”.

The aim is to further develop the 1:20 scale magnetic train model existing at the IEM. To this end, the test track is to be extended to include a combination of a linear asynchronous machine in short stator design and a linear synchronous machine in long stator design, taking into account the structural conditions of the test hall. The levitation operation is realized with so-called hybrid actuators, which consist of a combination of electric and permanent magnets.

The six-month implementation of this master’s thesis is supported by the Hans Hermann Voss Foundation – in particular, the material costs for the prototype are financed. The foundation supports master’s theses by RWTH students who conduct research in one of the university’s profile areas and whose work contributes to solving application-related problems.
