PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF A TRANSLATORY, MAGNETIC SUSPENSION SYSTEM

An experimental study is undertaken to investigate the performance characteristics of a translatory magnetic suspension utilizing low-loss permanent magnets for vertical support and servo-controlled electromagnets for lateral stability. The information obtained, such as the importance of individual drag contributors, control power requirements and stability factors have potential interest in fields ranging from instrument design to high speed transportation.
