Hyperloop is a high-speed ground transportation system capable of greater than 300 m/s, with extremely low operating costs. The system creates a low pressure environment for reduced drag losses, and utilizes a high power electromagnetic linear motor for propulsion. The motor design has been performed using JMAG, along with the optimization tool HEEDS to arrive at a motor design that is highly cost-effective at the system level. The design and development activities at Hyperloop shall be presented with a focus on the propulsion system.
