AbstractThis paper deals with a new approach to explore the precise dynamic response of the maglev system train and its control. Magnetic-suspension systems are characterized by high nonlinearity and open-loop instability which are the core components of maglev vehicles. Firstly, we use the electromagnetics and mechanics laws to derive the mathematical expressions of the proposed maglev system. Analytical investigation and theoretical calculation show that for the specific values of the control

It points out that the inherent nonlinearity, the inner coupling, misalignments between the sensors and actuators, and external disturbances are the main issues that should be considered for maglev engineering. Secondly, a control strategy based on the precise model of a nonsing ular robust sliding mode control is designed to reduce the upper bound of both the uncertainty and interference of the sliding mode controller. This approach presents an added value compared to the new sliding control methods in terms of overshoot and speed of convergence which is designed to control the vertical position of the proposed system. By using rigorous mathematical transformation associated with the adaptation laws in the frequency domain, a sufficient condition is drawn for the stability of the dynamical error based on the Lyapunov theory. This allows us a great possibility for interpreting the operation of the maglev train system. Numerical results are presented to show the effectiveness of our proposed control scheme.
