Structures and Characteristics of Magnetic Bearing with Zero Power Controlled Electromagnetic Suspension
This paper proposes a new magnetic bearing in order to decrease rotor eccentricity and power consumption. The proposed bearing system consists of moving frames, suspensions, permanent magnets, electromagnets and Zero Power controller. The system enables to avoid rotor touchdowns. A clearance between a rotor and our proposed bearing may be increased compared to conventional electromagnetic bearings. The paper shows the experimental results to verify testing system.
