Creating a Maglev Track using Electromagnets?

  • #1
Hi All,

I was wondering how I would go about creating a circular maglev track using electromagnets? The idea is to have more control over it and to eventually write a piece of code that would allow changes in the strength of the magnetic field potentially? I was just wondering how it would work as there isn't much literature about toroidal electromagnets - and everything is saying that it wouldn't work properly.

Many thanks in advance!
