Abstract: This paper presents a fuzzy logic controller design for the stabilization of magnetic levitation system (Maglev 's).Additionally, the investigation on Linear Quadratic Regulator Controller (LQRC) also mentioned here. This paper presents the difference between the performance of fuzzy logic control (FLC) and LQRC for the same linear model of magnetic levitation system .A magnetic levitation is a nonlinear unstable system and the fuzzy logic controller brings the magnetic levitation system to a stable region by keeping a magnetic ball suspended in the air. The modeling of the system is simulated using Matlab Simulink and connected to Hilink platform and the maglev model of Zeltom company. This paper presents a comparison for both LQRC and FLC to control a ball suspended on the air. The performance results of simulation shows that the fuzzy logic controller had better performance than the LQR control.
