China introduced the prototype of the maglev train, which will travel at 600 kilometers per hour. Maglev is used for trains traveling without contact with the rails using magnetic lifting force. China Central Television (CCTV), the city of Shandong province in Shandong province of the country 600 kilometers per hour at the speed of the maglev train prototype of the assembly line displayed.
The project was developed by China state company China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC). Mr. Ding Sansan, the company's chief engineer, said he could test key technologies of the prototype and the important technological components of the high-speed maglev train system.
Stating that the prototype will create a technological basis for engineering studies, Ding said, "The prototype has managed to take off static and is in good condition."
Noting that CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co is currently building experimental production centers for high-speed maglev trains, Ding said they expect to put these centers into service in the second half of the year.
It is aimed to carry out the first test drive of the 2020 kilometer with the single-wagon prototype, which stated that the R & D studies continue smoothly.
In 2021, the company plans to complete the testing process by conducting extensive tests of the maglev train.
IMPORTANT PROJECT OF 5 ANNUAL PLAN
The maglev train is expected to fill the gap between the 350-400 high-speed train at an hourly speed and the passenger airplane flying at about 800 per hour.
The Maglev train project is seen as one of the important projects of the Chinese Communist Party's 13th 5-Year Plan (2016-2020).
The Beijing government, which has invested heavily in high-speed train projects in recent years, increased the length of high-speed rail lines to 2017 kilometers by 25.
DOES NOT CONTACT THE RAILS
Maglev technology enables the train to move in magnetic fields. In this technology, magnetic lifting force due to magnetic field energy prevents any contact and friction between train and rail system. In this way, the train can reach high speeds because it is not exposed to slowing agents.
The world's first commercialized maglev train was launched in 2005 in Nagoya, Japan.
On April 21, 2015, Japan reached a speed of 603 kilometers by maglev train and broke a record in this area. (I tr.sputniknews.co)
