Field Determination and Calculation of Stiffness Parameters in an Active Magnetic Bearing (AMB)
Field analysis was applied to the simulation of magnetic field distribution and calculation of its integral parameters in an active magnetic bearing (AMB). 3D Finite Element Method (FEM) was employed for the computations. The magnetic force which act on the moving shift and stiffness parameters of AMB were calculated under the steady state conditions. The measurement results confirm rightness of the field modeling. The inductances of the stator winding coils were computed, as well. They have been used for the analysis of the AMB dynamics, which is not presented here.
