The LIM will try to use capacitors to reduce the overall size of the power feed to match up with the concepts behind the air compressor system. Additionally, a LIM is more of a solid state system, meaning there are theoretically fewer mechanical issues (which you trade for generally more expensive electrical issues). Both systems will have power delivery efficiency losses though.

Thank you for that information as well. That sounds like some very large capacitors.
