    • An integrated self-sensing approach for active magnetic bearings 

      Ranft, Eugen Otto; Van Schoor, George; Du Rand, Carel Petrus (SAIEE Publications, 2011)
      Self-sensing permits active magnetic bearings (AMBs) to consolidate the actuation and sensing functions into a single electromagnetic transducer. Eliminating the position sensing device as well as interfacing reduce potential ...
    • Self-sensing for electromagnetic actuators. Part 1: A coupled reluctance network model approach 

      Ranft, Eugen Otto; Van Schoor, George; Du Rand, Carel Petrus (Elsevier, 2011)
      A self-sensing arrangement in active magnetic bearings (AMBs) comprises a single electromagnetic transducer to realize the actuation and sensing functions concurrently. Minimizing the number of sensing devices and associated ...
    • Self-sensing for electromagnetic actuators. Part 2: Position estimation 

      Ranft, Eugen Otto; Van Schoor, George; Du Rand, Carel Petrus (Elsevier, 2011)
      The second paper in a two part series presents the position estimation scheme for an 8-pole heteropolar active magnetic bearing (AMB). The integrated self-sensing assembly comprises a nonlinear MIMO parameter estimator ...
