Modeling and Control of an Axial Bearing Generating Forces and Torques
A new type of active axial magnetic bearing is considered which is capable of generating forces and torques. A network approach is used for modeling of the position dependent current-force/torque-relation. The bearing is used for positioning with a flatness-based position controller. Results from model validation and position control experiments are presented.
