Abstract

Hybrid train is a train which is a hybrid of the concept ideas of coil gun, rail gun, halback array, magnetic levitation etc. Theoretically this train could achieve the fastest Speed an object could reach respect to its mass. This train could surpass sound barrier and could even be made to go to speed exceeding mach 3. But due to travel safety a certain speed limit can be implemented in these train. These trains use less amount of electricity. These trains need electricity only to excite the train moving forward so the other winding loops can be switched off. The concept of coil gun is used to accelerate ions in LHC to do various scientific experiment in the LHC the atoms are accelerated very much closer to the speed of light (299,792,458 m/s). But due to the increase in mass the Einstein equation states that the greater the mass the more energy need to be applied to achieve certain speed. Thus, we can control the speed of the train to a speed at which even the severe accident leads to the least injury. This train could be the future of our humanity and has the highest safety measures a train could have.

Keywords: Rail-gun, Coil-gun, eddy current based Magnetic levitation, Halbach array, Eddy current based projectile system.
