21世紀へ伝えたい超伝導応用技術7 : 超電導リニア開発裏話 Development of Superconducting Maglev System
The development of a superconducting Maglev system in Japan was started more than 30 years ago. Since 1997, the running tests have been successfully continued on the Yamanashi test line. A manned run in 1999 attained a speed of 552km/h, The Yamanashi test results proved a remarkable stability of the onboard superconducting magnet system, In these 30 years, we have encountered many difficult problems during this development. In this paper, the history of the Maglev development will be introduced with focus on these problems, especially in regard to the superconducting magnets and onboard refrigerators.
