Comparison of hyperloop and existing transport vehicles in terms of security and costs
Özbek R., Çodur M.Y.
Abstract

Technological developments have increased the possibilities, comfort, reliability, and speed of the transportation network in the world. Today, various transport vehicles try to meet the speed, economy, and safety demands of passengers. However, as the passengers' demand increase depending on the population, the requirement for innovation in this field increases. Various studies have been carried out to determine the benefit-cost ratio of Hyperloop, an alternative developed to meet the speed requirement in this respect. The decision to build the Hyperloop anywhere else in the world depends on the system's characteristics, such as sustainability, economy, safety, and response to passenger demands. In this study, Hyperloop and existing systems were compared with comfort, safety, and cost considering these criteria. It was focused on the commercial planes, Maglev, and high-speed train features, as they are similar to Hyperloop in these comparisons. Based on the relevant data, it has been reached that the Hyperloop system could prevent it from becoming a widespread public transport vehicle because of its low passenger capacity and expensive construction and operation.

Major restoration of massive bridge supports
Averchenko G.A., Borisov V.A., Vasilev K.A.
Abstract

The object of research in this article is the methods of restoring massive bridge supports, depending on the nature and volume of destruction. The work is based on the analysis of publications of domestic and foreign scientists, by the method of theoretical study, analysis and generalization of the material. From an organizational point of view, minor work on the repair of supports can be carried out by the order of the roads themselves, but as for large-scale work, they are sharply different from work on temporary restoration. The repair of damaged supports from a broken part of the masonry is not much different from the repair and reinforcement of supports performed on existing bridges. The greatest difficulties will be the repair of supports in the underwater part. To work on each individual repair facility, organizations with high mobility, skilled labor and a sufficient supply of materials are needed.

Sharing economy development in urban transport systems
Volkova E.M.
Abstract

The evolution of urban transport systems leads to the emerging of new forms of transport services. This trend is increasing during the period of intensive development of new technologies, for example, digital technologies and smart transport systems. However, smart transport system involves not only implementation of information and communication technologies, but also changes in the business model of transport company, forms of their interaction with competitors and consumers. One of this new forms is transport sharing, which is the part of sharing economy. The latter involves the reduction of private ownership and sharing of benefits in different industries. Sharing economy is mainly develops in such areas as housing rental, trade and procurement, job search, and project financing. Recently, the accelerated development of sharing consumption of transport services with the accompanying development of electronic travel search services has attracted attention.  This trend may in the near future significantly affect the structure of transport market, as well as forms and methods of doing business in urban transport, so the study of the segment of shared consumption in transport is of particular relevance. The purpose of this article is classification of new business models in the segment of transport sharing, as well as identification of the problems of transport sharing development in Russian megacities. The material for the research was taken from open sources, available publications and scientific articles on the economy of shared consumption.

Results: As a result of the research, the factors that determine the appearance of the electrotechnical complex of the rolling stock have been identified. The basic requirements for the electrical complex are formulated. The structure was developed and the parameters of the components of the electrical complex for the transport platform with magnetic levitation were determined. A high-speed flat car model 13-6990 for the transportation of containers was chosen as the closest railway analogue. A computer model of a combined traction-levitation system based on a linear reluctance inductor motor has been developed. The results of computational studies, confirming the physical feasibility of the electrical complex of the rolling stock with linear reluctance inductor motors, are presented.

Conclusion: The practical significance lies in the fact that the proposed concept of constructing an electro technical complex of rolling stock provides for the creation of a maglev transport system with a low-cost infrastructure.

Construction of multichannelmagnetolevitation systems
Sundukov E.Y., Shifrin B.M., Sundukova V.E.
Abstract

Background: It is proposed to set a traveling magnetic field in a special control channel (beam, pipe), coupled with several controlled channels - small-sized maglev systems in which levitation of transport modules is carried out.

Aim: to interface the control channel with several controlled channels (up to four) – small-sized maglev systems. In this case, the control channel will be located in the center, and the controlled channels at the top, right, bottom, left.

Methods: 3D-modeling, layout, spatial composition, patent search.

Results: The traveling magnetic field in the control channel is created by a moving sequence of interacting magnetic field sources – the movers, which interact too with magnetic field sources of transport modules – the fellow travelers, levitating in the controlled channels through sources of a constant magnetic field. The structure is installed on arched supports that uniformly distribute the load over the support surface. A model of a two-channel system with a lower location of a controlled channel has been developed.

Conclusion: The small-sized maglev systems can form a multi-channel transport system.

Almakki A.J., Mazalov A.
Abstract

Background: The direct flux and torque control are a robust, simple, and alternative approach control formulation that does not require decomposition into symmetrical components; the direct flux and torque control schemes have been proved to be preponderant for doubly-fed induction generators due to the simple implementation.

Aim: This work presents the minimization of electromagnetic torque and rotor flux undulations of doubly-fed induction generators using fractional-order super twisting algorithms and modified space vector modulation techniques.

Methods: The main role of direct flux and torque control is to regulate and control the electromagnetic torque and rotor flux of doubly-fed induction generators for wind turbine systems. The direct flux and torque control is a traditional control algorithm and robust technique. Fractional-order super twisting algorithms are a new and proposed nonlinear controller; characterized by a robust controller and a simpler algorithm, which gives a good harmonic distortion of current compared to other methods.

Novelty: The A fractional-order super twisting algorithm is proposed. Proposed nonlinear controller construction is based on the traditional super twisting algorithm and fractional calculus to obtain a robust controller and reduces the electromagnetic torque and rotor flux undulations of doubly-fed induction generators. We use in our study a 1.5 MW doubly-fed induction generator integrated into a single-rotor wind turbine system to minimizes the electromagnetic torque, stator current, rotor flux undulations. As shown in the results figures using fractional-order super twisting algorithms ameliorate effectiveness especially minimizes the electromagnetic torque and rotor flux, and minimizes harmonic distortion of stator current (0.16 %) compared to the traditional control scheme.

Results: As shown in the results figures using fractional-order super twisting algorithms ameliorate effectiveness especially minimizes the electromagnetic torque and rotor flux, and minimizes harmonic distortion of stator current (0.16 %) compared to the traditional control scheme.

Conclusion: The direct flux and torque control are a robust, simple, and alternative approach control formulation that does not require decomposition into symmetrical components; the direct flux and torque control schemes have been proved to be preponderant for doubly-fed induction generators due to the simple implementation.
