A Study on an Effect of the Flux feedback on an Open-loop Characteristic of the Magnetic Levitation System
This paper deals with an open-loop characteristic of a magnetically levitated system including flux feedback. In order to design a controller to obtain a good disturbance rejection and to be insensitive to parameter variations, it might be useful to employ a flux feedback loop. The air gap flux which can be sensed by a proper sensor has linear relationship with respect to the change of the current and the air gap. This linear property decreases the inherent nonlinearity of the magnetic suspension system that is caused by the coupling between the electrical actuator and the mechanical plant. Simulation results show that the flux feedback loop makes an improvement of the performance of the magnetic suspension system against the load variations.
