Hybrid Magnetic Railway: ML

The project involves the creation of elements of drive and suspension systems for vehicles and linear infrastructure of the Hybrid Magnetic Railway (HMR) and ultimately the Low Pressure Railway (LPR, known in the original version as Hyperloop). For the needs of the Hybrid Magnetic Railway, tests of elements integrating the magnetic track with a conventional railway track and a hybrid turnout will be performed. As part of the project, a test track and a prototype of a real-size open magnetic railway vehicle will be built. The suspension system used by Hyper Poland will be based on passive magnetic levitation, which will allow to increase speed while minimizing operating costs. The electric linear motor used for the drive will enable high speeds (approx. 300 km/h for HMR and approx. 600 km/h for LPR in existing corridors and over 1000 km/h for LPR on new routes). The subject of the research will be the drive and the suspension as a system of two cooperating objects. Implementation of the Project outcomes will concern the HMR system for the transport of goods, and later passengers, on sections of up to 300 km. It will include the installation of the developed product, i.e. the drive and magnetic suspension in vehicles intended for the transport of goods, and the retrofitting of the existing railway track infrastructure with a magnetic track, using special integrators (overlays for railway sleepers).
