This paper involves the design and hardware implementation of control system required for “Magnetic levitation of transportation system.”The maglev transportation system is more stable for levitation of vehicle by utilizing lead compensator.It is found that the designed system can suspend the medium of 250gms of object at a distance of about 10mm below the magnet surface while taking 1.2A of current through the magnets. Maglev systems are currently in use for applications such as bearings, high-speed trains, and manufacturing. With a streamlining of the high-precision maglev system, many unanticipated applications will develop for the future.
