This paper presents a comparison between the centralized and de-centralized controllers of a magnetically levitated vehicle. The simulation accounts for the interaction between the vehicle and girder through the control electromagnetic levitation force of the vehicle. In this way, the effects of: controller dynamics, electrodynamics, vehicle dynamics, and vehicle velocity are considered in order to provide a more realistic simulation. The main purpose of this work is to qualify the performance of each controller in sustaining an acceptable ride quality referred to ISO2631.
