Delevitation modelling of an active magnetic bearing supported rotor
(s.nCurran Associates, 2010)
For active magnetic bearings (AMBs) to be used with confidence in industrial applications, the safe failure of the AMB system should be guaranteed. The exact behaviour of the rotor on the backup bearings (BBs) is relatively ...
