Levitation force is studied in a two-dimensional system consisting of an infinitely long superconductor immersed in the magnetic field created by different arrangements of infinitely long parallel permanent magnets, based on the critical-state model using the magnetic energy minimization procedure. Results on force, stability, and losses in the levitation process in this system are analyzed. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
