For the superconducting Maglev system to be commercially viable, it is important to reduce costs. Simplifying the ground coil structure effectively would achieve this, but will increase the harmonic magnetic fields that intensify the vibration of on-board superconducting magnets (SCMs). Excessive vibration gives rise to greater heat loss. We have studied an SCM for simplified ground coils and with this paper report on its design, the results of emplacement tests and provide several analyses.
