The American version of Maglev (AMLEV) was developed in the USA since 1992. It is based on the interaction between a system of permanent magnets (PMs) installed on the vehicle, and steel cores positioned along the guideway. By using an analytical model, the inventor demonstrated that the system was able to produce levitating and stabilizing forces, allowing to safely reach a speed up to 150 m/s. In the present paper, the AMLEV technology is firstly simulated by using a FEM model; then its possible application in a low speed urban transportation system is verified. Finally, a comparison in terms of energy consumption and braking energy recovery efficiency is performed.
