New Chinese magnetic levitation train can reach speeds of 600 km/h

The Chinese company China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC) presented the prototype of the Maglev, capable of top speed of 600 kilometers per hour, making it the fastest magnetic levitation train in the world. The prototype of the new Maglev CRRC going to the company in Qingdao. In the near future to begin his trial. It is expected that regular operation of the new Maglev will start in 2021.

Maglev or trains on the basis of magnetic levitation are held above the road, and move, and are controlled by an electromagnetic field, which creates between the structure and the road a small air pillow. During the movement of the train for a way and the only force causing deceleration of the Maglev is the aerodynamic resistance. This technology allows the train to not only quickly accelerate, but do it very smoothly.

The new Chinese Maglev train will be able to significantly reduce travel time for those branches where it will be used because its maximum speed will significantly surpass the capabilities of conventional trains.

“Take, for example, the path from Beijing to Shanghai. Taking into account the full time training aircraft this journey will take 4.5 hours, about 5.5 high-speed train and just 3.5 hours using a new Maglev”, — quotes the words of Ding San San, Deputy chief engineer of the company CRRC Agency CNN.

At the moment the fastest electromagnetic expensive in the world is the way between the international airport Pudong and metro station Lunyan in Shanghai. The length of the line is about 30 kilometers. Maglev rides on it in 7 minutes and 20 seconds at speeds of 430 kilometers per hour.

The fastest train in the world

In 2015, on an experimental stretch of track between Tokyo and Nagoya in Japan was established the speed record for trains on a magnetic cushion. Then the car reached the speed of 603 mph. It is expected to operate these trains will begin in 2027, as we complete the construction of a nearly 300-kilometre branch line of the Chuo Shinkansen between Tokyo and Osaka. Such high-speed trains will reduce the journey time between Tokyo and Nagoya to 40 minutes, and between Tokyo and Osaka to 67 minutes, which is more than half exceeds the capacity of trains-bullets, use the normal rails.

Speaking of the latter, currently the fastest Japanese trains-the bullet run at speeds up to 360 kilometers per hour, but the company JR East is testing the new train-bullet Alfa-X, can accelerate to 400 kilometers per hour. It is planned to put into permanent operation by 2030.
