A short literature review is given on the dynamics of Maglev vehicles. Then, the mathematical model of the entire system is shown, comprising vehicle, suspension, and guideway dynamics. The result is a high order linear state equation with periodic time-varying coefficients and jumping states. However, the control system design calls for simple low order models which are approached in different ways. For the resulting closed-loop system a stability analysis is given and steady state responses to deterministic and stochastic disturbances are calculated using common numerical simulation techniques as well as procedures which are based on Floquet theory. The methods are demonstrated by an example which also shows the influence of the different design parameters. In the paper the basic ideas are emphasized rather than any computational details.
