Vehicles of superconducting maglev system are suspended and driven by superconducting (SC) coils, which have strong magnetic field, and their passenger cabin must be shielded from leakage flux by the SC coils. In order to reduce the leakage flux, we have studied an improved configuration of SC coils, which has small size coils on its end. This configuration can reduce the environmental magnetic field, so that it can strengthen the magnetomotive force of SC coils. This paper describes the characteristics of levitation, guidance and propulsion performance at strengthening the magnetomotive force on the improved configuration of SC coils.
