Exploiting residual magnetization in bearing components to characterize bearing rotation

Massimo Macucci; Paolo Marconcini; Mauro Bologna; Bernardo Tellini 2016 IEEE International Smart Cities Conference (ISC2), 2016

We investigate the possibility to exploit the residual magnetism of bearings to characterize their rotation. Several bearings with different characteristics and diameter have been studied. A magnetic field sensor and a search loop register the magnetic field variation due to the rotation. Data are processed by means of a Dynamic Signal Analyzer and frequency components characteristic of the bearing geometry ...


Magnetic properties of small acicular particles

P. Scholten IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, 1980

Using the optical techniques described previously, the mean dipole moments and anisotropy fields, as well as the switching field distributions were measured on gamma ferric oxide, cobalt-doped gamma ferric oxide and chromium dioxide particles suspended in a liquid. A new method for the determination of switching field distributions is described; its results agree with those of the older one. The ...


Contactless planar actuator with manipulator

Jeroen de Boeij; Elena Lomonova; Jorge L. Duarte; Andre J. A. Vandenput 2007 European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications, 2007

The accuracy and reliability of high-precision machines is compromised by friction and disturbances due to cables to moving machine parts. These problems can be solved by applying three contactless techniques in one system: contactless generation of forces and torques, contactless energy transfer to a moving load and wireless control. This paper presents an overview of the research performed at Eindhoven ...


Crossing Phenomena and Flux Balance in the Force–Displacement Hysteresis Curve of Superconductor–Magnet System

Jimin Xu; Fei Zhang; Tao Sun; Xiaoyang Yuan; Cuiping Zhang IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, 2016

Three YBCO bulk superconductors with different critical current densities are used to investigate the magnetic force of a simple superconductor-magnet system under different relative speed values between YBCO and a magnet. The initial cooling processes for superconductors include zero field cooled (ZFC) and field cooled (FC). Crossing phenomena can be observed both in force- displacement hysteresis curves of superconductors with ...


Sensorless position control of active magnetic bearings based on high frequency signal injection method

Jung-Sik Yim; Jang-Hwan Kim; Seung-Ki Sul; Hyeong-Joon Ahn; Dong-Chul Han Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition, 2003. APEC '03. Eighteenth Annual IEEE, 2003

This paper proposes a novel method to estimate the position of suspended body that hovers due to the electromagnetic force. The position information of the suspended body can be extracted from the coil currents, which contain the high frequency components due to the injected high frequency voltage without any additional hardware. The control of coil currents and the position of ...
