Abstract
One of the prospective applications of YBaCuO bulk high temperature superco nductors (HTS) is for superconducting magnetic levitation (Maglev) vehicles . The levitation force of a single permanent magnet over a single supercond ucting YBaCuO bulk has been researched, but this is not enough for practica l Maglev vehicles. In this paper, properties of the levitation force of a Y BaCuO bulk HTS over a NdFeB guideway are investigated. The magnetic field a t the guideway surface is up to 1.2 T. During the experiment, bulk YBaCuO i s placed in a columnar liquid nitrogen vessel, whose bottom thickness is on ly 3.5 mm, and it is over the guideway. The YBaCuO is cooled in a zero magn etic field with liquid nitrogen and can mol e up and down at different velo cities. The measurement process is fully controlled by a computer. In this case? there is a 103.4 IV levitation force at a 5 mm gap between the YBaCuO (diameter=30 mm, thickness=14 mm) sample and the NdFeB guideway. In additi on, we compare the levitation force over the NdFeB guideway with that over a single cylindrical NdFeB permanent magnet.
