In this paper, the multiple factors in the transition process is comprehensively analyzed. When the armature is sliding at a very high speed, the velocity skin effect will generate the melt-wave. Then the melt-wave will produce a reversed electromagnetic force, which will leads to the armature separating from the rail. The larger the erosion area, the stronger the separating force. Besides, the mechanical force is much smaller than electromagnetic force. When the contact area cannot meet the… Expand
