In this paper, the electromagnetic levitator at Space Power Institute at Auburn University is analyzed via finite element method. The electromagnetic field quantities were calculated for various geometric parameters and source conditions. The results of the analysis were used in the design process of a fuzzy logic controller designed to stabilize the motion of the levitated samples. The fuzzy logic control scheme and the control program are also presented.
