Homework Statement


To design a working maglev model.... in steps and phases. I m working on creating a working maglev model for college electrical engineering project. I am building this from scratch and Im currently working on a 4-5 section of track to start with levitation.

Homework Equations

The Attempt at a Solution


Im planning on mounting electromagnets in to a wooden board that will hold a lightweight car of foam( for the moment just to prove that it works maybe some thing more realistic later). The car will have a square 1 inch magnetic in it. The track, im planning on placing electromagnets made from nails and enamel coated wire.

Questions:
Should i be using DC or AC to power. Suggestion of gauge of wire. Any ideas?
