This paper presents a control strategy for maglev system based on the sliding mode controller with auto-tuning law. The designed adaptive controller will replace the conventional sliding mode control (SMC) to eliminate the chattering resulting from the SMC. The stability of maglev system is ensured based on the Lyapunov theory. Simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed method. In addition, the advantages of the proposed controller are indicated in comparison with a traditional sliding mode controller.
