A mathematical model of a magnetically suspended vehicle using electromagnets is established. Since such a system is unstable in open-loop mode, the authors suggest a method by which the values of the parameters of the control system that has to be introduced for the stabilization of the vehicle can be calculated. An experimental model of a vehicle was built. It consists of an experimental platform levitated by permanent magnets in opposition; it is laterally unstable and hence guided by means of two electromagnets.
