SOLUTION OF CONTACT-FREE PASSIVE MAGNETIC BEARING
Daniel Mayer - Vít Veselý
The submitted paper deals with a simple method allowing easy calculation of
static characteristics of passive radial or axial permanent magnetic bearings.
There are two ways leading to an increase of the loading capacity: by asymmetrical
arrangement of the bearing, or by its shielding with the help of a ferromagnetic
jacket. The calculation algorithm is illustrated by numerical examples.
Keywords: passive magnetic bearing, application of permanent magnets, magnetic levitation, stiffness of magnetic bearing.
