Vacuum Transport Seminar Session 5 | 17.05.2021 at 18:00 CET
May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Prof. Dr. Barbara Lenz, DLR Institute for Transport Research
One of the main objectives for future transport development is therefore the shift from road-based individual transport to shared means of transport, above all public transport. The past few years have shown, based on a variety of sharing services, that in supplement to traditional public transport, additional areas of the market are open to new concepts and business models. In fact, however, this is almost exclusively related to everyday traffic and especially urban traffic. New concepts and business models for long-distance transport are missing. The lecture will present the demand in domestic and European long-distance passenger transport and, on this basis, discuss the possible additional function of a hyperloop system.

Hyperloop is an ultra-high speed transportation system concept, which can use superconductors for propulsion. This contribution analyzes a liquid nitrogen cryostat for the cooling of high temperature superconductors. A design tool is presented, which helps the early-stage development of these cryostats.

Almost every hyperloop concept has a propulsion system based on a linear electric motor. In some it is the main drive system and in others it is just a support system for fast acceleration. The presentation will be focused on the technologies of linear electric motors and will present its different types, topologies and transportation applications to show the advantages of such motors in propulsion systems of high-speed linear transportation systems.
