Maglev Train video. Brief History. In 1902, the first magnetic train was invented by Alfred Zehden of Germany. In 1959, the design for the first magnetic train was created. In 1979, first magnetic train was built in Hamburg, Germany but was closed months later.
Considered a futuristic idea for its time, the invention of the train by Alfred Zehden was awarded its first patent in 1905. Many scientists around the globe were working on the same idea but it was Zehden’s that is credited with the invention of the Maglev.
Maglev (derived from magnetic levitation) is a system of train transportation that uses two sets of magnets, one set to repel and push the train up off the track, then another set to move the 'floating train' ahead at great speed taking advantage of the lack of friction.Along certain "medium range" routes (usually 200 to 400 miles (320 to 640 km)) Maglev can compete favorably wit...
Maglev(magnetic levitation) trains are believed to be the future of passenger traveling, even though it was invented over a century ago. Alfred Zehden came up with its idea and got a patent in 1905. Slowly, as technology is improved, these fast trains will pop up in many countries over the world, with some of them already here, and others in ...

Magnetically Levitated Trains (Maglev) Abstract. Maglev systems represent a promising evolution in the high-speed ground transportation, offering speeds in excess of 500 mph along with the potential for low operating costs and minimal environmental impact. The goal of this effort is to investigate the feasibility and
In 1902, the first magnetic train was invented by Alfred Zehden; In 2004, the fastest maglev train was invented for passengers to ride on; Superconductors produce mirrored images of each other; The longest Maglev in use today is the Shanghai Maglev at 30.5 km; maglev is short for Magnetic Levitation
The first patent for a magnetic levitation train propelled by linear motors was German Patent 707032, issued in June 1941. The US patent 12700 date 1st October 1907 was for a linear motor propelled train in which the motor, below the steel track, carried some but not all of the weight of the train ( inventor Alfred Zehden of Frankfurt-am-Main )
Magnetic Levitation Principle : Magnetic levitation, maglev, or magnetic suspension is a method by which an object is suspended with no support other than magnetic fields. Magnetic force is used to counteract the effects of the gravitational accel...
A linear motor is an electric motor that has had its stator and rotor "unrolled" so that instead of producing a torque it produces a linear force along its length. However, linear motors are not necessarily straight. Characteristically, a linear motor's active section has ends, whereas more conventional motors are arranged as a continuous loop.
