A high temperature superconducting (HTS) MagLev transportation prototype with these YBCO materials has been constructed at NCKU to validate the concept of HTS-MagLev system based on Meissner effect. This HTS MagLev prototype can run continuously almost without friction over the magnetic rail with a capability of levitating over 2 kg weight (with a loading capability over 1 kg weight). The results of various magnetic levitation parameters, such as different permanent magnet configurations, relative levitation stability, levitation force, etc., as well as magnetic field intensity and distribution are discussed.
