This study introduces 600-km/h wheel-type railway concept propelled by linear synchronous motor (LSM) and deals with the conceptual design for LSM system. The LSM is designed to be of a coreless type, which uses high-Tc superconducting electromagnet (SC-EM) as on-board field magnet. From tentative train parameters, we suggest a conceptual LSM model and its design parameters to achieve the train performances. As high-Tc SC material, we use currently available YBCO tape in designing the SC coil. We produce three SC coil models and estimate tentative design values of each model. The feasibility study described herein provides informative design ranges of LSM for 600-km wheel-type railway.
