We have constructed and demonstrated levitating transporter models composed of the superconductor bulks (HTS bulks) and permanent magnets. The dynamic characteristics of lift force, lateral force and magnetic stiffness are very important for the design of superconducting devices such as a levitation system. The electromagnetic phenomenon should be clarified through the accurate analyses of the magnetic field and shielding current distributions within HTS bulks. In this study, we developed a new simulation program based on the three-dimensional hybrid finite element and boundary element (3D hybrid FE-BE) method, which combines with the fast multipole method (FMM). By using the FMM, it is possible to solve the large-scale problem with a reduction of the required memory size and improvement of the accuracy. This simulation program can consider the anisotropic and nonlinear E - J characteristics of HTS bulks. The results of experiment and numerical simulation are in good agreement.
