Lorentz Force Type Integrated Motor-Bearing System In Dual Rotor Disk Configuration
This paper proposes a generalized principle for the generation of torque and radial force in integrated motor-bearing systems using Lorentz force. The derived constraints lead to various feasible combinations of design parameters. Dual rotor disk configuration with a coreless stator is also proposed. It induces no negative stiffness, which is useful for the system stability and robustness to the tilting motion of the rotor. The test rig is developed for 5 and 6 windings with an 8-pole rotor and operated successfully employing a simple PD-like controller.
