It is beneficial to apply a high-Tc bulk superconductor as a large flux source to an electromagnetic levitation system, which needs large amounts of levitation force. We made an attractive-type electromagnetic levitation system using a hybrid magnet that mainly consisted of bulk superconductor and control coils to confirm the principle of the levitation, and obtained characteristics of its system by both experiment and numerical analysis with magnetic circuit calculation
