This paper describes an electromagnetic levitation experience developed at UFRJ using the realtime control toolbox available with MATLAB. This work shows the model used in the position control of a steel ball, the control design procedure and the prototype. The main application of this experience was focused in the vertical position control of a maglev train system, also researched at UFRJ.
