The safety and performance of a high-speed magnetically levitated (maglev) vehicle negotiating an elevated guideway can be evaluated using computer simulation studies which confirm the importance of accounting for the dynamic interaction that couples the vehicle and guideway. Dynamically interacting systems have three critical components; vehicle, guideway and controller. This article summarizes the recent activities at CMRI to formulate analytical models of each of these components. Computer simulation studies of an electromagnetic suspension (FMS) maglev system are also conducted.
