An Experimental Study On Load Carrying Capacity Of A Magnetic Bearing

( Volume 3 Issue 11,November 2016 ) OPEN ACCESS

The use of bearing is essential to all types of machines they provide the function of supporting heavier component in a desired position. These bearings have contact with the rotating part and causes surface wear which can be controlled by lubrication. The standards of performance for rotating equipment can be raised by providing robust, cost effective and easy to implement ‘Magnetic bearings’. A radial magnetic bearing, consisting of two permanent magnets, is an attractive choice because of its zero wear, negligible friction, and low cost, but it suffers from low load capacity, low radial stiffness, lack of damping and high axial instability. To enhance the radial load and radial stiffness and reduce the axial thrust, a theoretical and experimental study of various radial configurations, including hydrodynamic lubrication to improve dynamic performance of the magnetic bearing is made.
