This paper describes the levitation mechanism of a maglev planar transportation vehicle. Levitation force is generated using magnetic wheels and nonmagnetic conductor. The combination of the linear induction motor mechanism enables the vehicle to do planar motion. The effects of the major design parameters are estimated through the analysis and experiments. Parametric design to get required performance of the levitation mechanism is achieved using those design parameters.
