Active Magnetic Bearings As a Tool for Parameter Identification of Journal Bearings
In this overview, it is presented how Active Magnetic Bearings (AMBs) can successfully be used for the measurement of equilibrium positions and the identification of stiffness and damping coefficients of journal bearings. Therefore, the theory of force measurements in AMBs by using either a theoretical or an experimentally derived relation is provided. Different operation modes of AMBs are considered, including the operation as a magnetic actuator. The successful parameter identification of journal bearing properties using AMBs is demonstrated by measurements.
