The Japanese high-speed train saw 500 kilometers per hour: the super-fast Magnetic levitation train (maglev) in the air in Japan made its first flight with its passengers and reached a speed of 500 kilometers per hour. During the journey, the astonishment of the passengers on the train was read from their faces. With its 100 passengers, the super-fast train, which made a 27-kilometer trip between Uenohara and Fuefuki, managed to reach a speed of 501 kilometers. The train will be tested in eight-day periods from December.
A similar train is also available in China. The highest speed that the Shanghai Maglev Train in China could reach was 431 kilometers per hour.
When the Maglev train starts in Japan, it will carry a thousand people with 16 wagons. With this train, for example, the Tokyo-Nagoya flight, which currently takes 80 minutes, can be carried out in 40 minutes.
The concept of Maglev is actually a concept that we are not very far away from in everyday life. As we know, the poles of the two magnets push each other. One of the two magnets placed below the bottom can be held in the air without touching the other with the effect of magnetic thrust forces.
Maglev trains work mainly with this principle. There are magnets under the Maglev trains. There are also electromagnets on the train rails specially designed for maglev trains. The electromagnet is a magnet with a magnetic field created by the electric current passing through a wire. If the current does not flow through the wires, the magnetic effect disappears or the poles of the magnet can be changed by controlling the direction of the current. Thanks to these magnets, the train travels on the rails at a height of 10 mm. Friction is greatly reduced as there is no contact with the rails. The shape of the train is designed to minimize friction with air.
