How Transrapid Works Support System The electromagnets on the underside of the train pull it up to the ferromagnetic stators on the track and levitate the train. The magnets on the side keep the train from moving from side to side. A computer changes the amount of current to keep the train 1 cm from the track. This means there is no friction between the train and the track!

Levitation System’s Power Supply Batteries on the train power the system, and therefore it still functions without propulsion. The batteries can levitate the train for 30 minutes without any additional energy. Linear generators in the magnets on board the train use the motion of the train to recharge the batteries. Levitation system uses less power than the trains air conditioning.

Propulsion System The system consists of aluminum three-phase cable windings in the stator packs that are on the guideway When a current is supplied to the windings, it creates a traveling alternating current that propels the train forward by pushing and pulling.

When the alternating current is reversed, the train brakes. Different speeds are achieved by varying the intensity of the current.
