In this study, a new cross type 4-pole non-contact carrier system is created by using U-type hibrid electromagnets (permanent magnet and electromagnet). For the cross type electromagnet, 3-dimensional analysis of the magnetic levitation forces in three axes (z, α, β) was made with the finite element method (FEM) and analytical calculations of the force analyzes were made by developing the magnetic equivalent circuit (MEC) of the electromagnet. The simulation results were compared with the analytical model obtained with MEC. The magnetic flux performance of the core when the levitating process of the carrier system is performed has been investigated. Matlab program was used for analytical calculations and ANSYS Maxwell-3D software was used for finite element analysis.
