What is HYPERLOOP?Hyperloop is a new mode of transportation?A high speed train that promises travel at twice the speed of commercial aircraft, transporting passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco in just 30 minutes.


It is proposed by ELON MUSK American Business magnate, investor, and inventor. He is currently the CEO & CTO of SpaceX and CEO & Chief Product Architect of Tesla Motors.


Elon Musk proposed the Hyperloop as an alternative to the costly California high speed rail A Hyperloop would be an elevated, reduced-pressure tube that contains pressurized capsules driven within the tube by a number of linear electric motors.The system can achieve an average speed of 598 mph (962 km/h), and a top speed of 760 mph (1,220 km/h).

Hyperloop consists of a low pressure tube with capsules that are transported at both low and high speeds throughout the length of the tube.

Hyperloop will serve as a form of greenn transportation as the energy requirements will be met through Solar energy which will make it energy efficient.

Components of HYPERLOOP

CAPSULEThe maximum width of the capsule is 4.43 ft (1.35 m) and maximum height is 6.11 ft (1.10 m). With rounded corners, this is equivalent to a 15 ft (1.14m) frontal area, not including any propulsion or suspension components.One important feature of the capsule is the onboard compressor, which serves two purposes . This system allows the capsule to traverse the relatively narrow tube without choking flow that travels between the capsule and the tube walls.By compressing air that is bypassed through the capsule. It also supplies air to air bearings that support the weight of the capsule throughout the journey.

TUBEThe tube is made of steel. Solar arrays will cover the top of the tubes in order to provide power to the system.The tube cross-sectional area is 42.2 ft (3.91 m2) giving a capsule/tube area ratio of 36% or a diameter ratio of 60%.

TUBE CONSTRUCTIONThe tube will be supported by pillars.Average spacing is 30m between each pillar. There will be roughly 25000 pillars for a distance of 680 kilometers Built using reinforced concrete .Tunneling mountains to kept the route straight.

PROPULSIONSLinear accelerators are constructed along the length of the tube at various locations to accelerate the capsules.Stators are located on the capsules to transfer momentum to the capsules via the linear accelerators.Capsules are accelerated by linear magnetic induction and decelerated by regenerative braking similar to magnetic levitation trains.The Hyperloop uses a linear induction motor to accelerate and decelerate the capsule. This provides several important benefits over a permanent magnet motor


SWOT AnalysisSTRENGTHSEconomical to build and operate made using extant technologies safe and eco-friendly.WEAKNESSInventor cannot complete alone no working prototype for testing. Infrastructure will take time.OPPORTUNITIESMore efficient than air under 900 ml ideal frequent travelers open source model, collaboration.THREATSSocietal resistance to change Californias high speed rail established modes of transit.


SAFETYCapsule DepressurizationCapsule stranded in TubeEarthquakesReliability

BENEFITSSaferFast (air)Lower cost at this kind of speed More convenientImmune to weatherSustainable (uses solar power)Resistant to earthquakesDecrease the trafficDecrease the frictional losses that occur at subsonic speed

LIMITATIONSWhen we use less pressure instead of vacuum then we need to increase the diameter of tube or go slow or really , really fast.But increasing speed that high will become very much expensive.A battery cant store enough energy to power fan over whole journey so a linear electric motor, a round induction motor rolled flat is provided.

SUMMARYA high speed transportation system known as Hyperloop introduced here.The concept of Hyperloop. Its basically magnetic levitation train in vacuum tubes helping in achieving high speeds. Using conventional magnetic levitation systems.Whose idea!Components of HyperloopSWOT analysis of HyperloopIt has various advantages over traditional transport system. Thus it also has some limitations.
