This paper displays some simulation results of dynamic responses of the high-Tc superconductors (HTSC)-Permanent magnet (PM) levitation systems taking into account the influence of the flux creep phenomena and of the thermal effect. We focus on the establishment of a three-dimensional numerical code to solve the nonlinear and coupled equations. A new control volume method is proposed for the resolution of the partial derivative equations of the treaded physical phenomena. The influence is comprehensively displayed by comparing the predictions of dynamic responses of such systems in which the thermal effect in the superconductor is and is not taken into account. The electromagnetic and thermal coupling is ensured by an alternate algorithm. The thermal effect highlights the influence of the temperature on the value of the magnetic levitation force, levitation stabilization time and shows that the vibration center of levitated body had drifted downward.
