 ABSTRACT 
Magnetic Levitation
uses magnetic fields to levitate a metallic object .Bymanipulating magnetic fields and controlling their forces an object can be levitated.Because of the growing need for quicker and more efficient methods for moving people and goods, researchers have turned to a new technique, one usingelectromagnetic rails and trains. This rail system is referred to as magnetic levitation,or maglev. Maglev is a generic term for any transportation system in which vehiclesare suspended and guided by magnetic forces. Instead of engines, maglev vehicles useelectromagnetism to levitate (raise) and propel the vehicle. Alternating current createsa magnetic field that pushes and pulls the vehicle which weighs almost about 1500tonnes and keeps it above the support structure, called a guide way.2
 
INTRODUCTION
The word levitation is derived from a Latin word
“LEVIS 
”, which means light.Magnetic levitation is the use of magnetic fields to levitate a metallic object. Bymanipulating magnetic fields and controlling their forces an object can be levitated.When the
like
poles of two permanent magnets come near each other, they produce amutually repulsing force that grows stronger as the distance between the polesdiminishes. When the
unlike
poles of two permanent magnets are brought close toeach other, they produce a mutually attractive force that grows stronger as thedistance between them diminish .A levitation system is designed around the attractiveforce, between unlike poles as it would require a perfect balance between theattractive magnetic force and the suspended weight .In the absence of a perfect liftand weight force profile, the conveyance would either be pulled up toward themagnets or would fall. This simple illustration of magnetic levitation shows that theforce of gravity can be counterbalanced by magnetic force.
TYPES OF LEVITATION
There are two ways of levitations,1. Active 2. Passive.3
