Levitation

View this topic in
Levitation (from Latin levitas "lightness") is the process by which an object is suspended by a physical force against gravity, in a stable position without solid physical contact. (Wikipedia.org)

Characterization of magnetic levitation of high Tc superconductor by energy conversion between electromagnetic and mechanical energy

M. Yoshishige; M. Kyousuke Electrical Machines and Systems, 2001. ICEMS 2001. Proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on, 2001

The levitation of bulk high Tc superconductor (HTSC) has been, hitherto, analyzed as a distributed system by computer using the finite element method. The essence of the levitation is, however, the energy conversion between the mechanical energy to move the HTSC, which is converted to magnetic field energy due to the circulating current in the HTSC. To clarify this idea, ...


High-Temperature Superconducting Linear Synchronous Motors Integrated With HTS Magnetic Levitation Components

Jian Xun Jin; Lu Hai Zheng; You Guang Guo; Jian Guo Zhu; Colin Grantham; Charles Christopher Sorrell; Wei Xu IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, 2012

High-temperature superconductors (HTSs) including HTS bulks and tapes have potential applications in linear motion drive and magnetic levitation/suspension systems generating substantial advantages over conventional ones. When an HTS linear motor is integrated with an HTS magnetic suspension subsystem, it can inherit both merits of HTS linear motion drive and HTS magnetic suspension simultaneously and can be applied into various fields, ...


Experimental evaluation of the total shielding current in a bulk high-Tc superconductor [YBaCuO]

M. Tsuchimoto; H. Takaichi; M. Murakami IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, 1996

Total shielding currents of a melt processed bulk high-Tc superconductor (HTS) are evaluated from the measured voltage of a Rogowski coil when a permanent magnet is moved towards the HTS. The total shielding current and the levitation force between the magnet and the HTS show rapid growth and decay depending on the speed of the magnet. The dynamic levitation force ...


A comparative study between fractional order SMC and SMC applied to magnetic levitation system

Prasanta Roy; Sambeda Sarkar; Binoy Krishna Roy; Nikita Singh 2017 Indian Control Conference (ICC), 2017

There is a trend in last one and a half decade to incorporate fractional calculus into the well-known integer order controllers to upgrade it to the respective fractional order controllers to achieve better performance. Such an attempt is made in this paper. This paper presents a comparative study between Sliding Mode Controller and Fractional Order Sliding Mode Controller when applied ...


Mass adaptive controller design for high temperature superconducting levitation system based on feedback linearization

Li Ya-Jian; Li Jie; Wang Lian-Chun 2015 34th Chinese Control Conference (CCC), 2015

High temperature superconducting (HTS) levitation system is a typical nonlinear system, which is vulnerable to external disturbance and internal unstable. Traditional PID and feedback control can not adapt to large mass changes. For this feature, a mass adaptive controller based on feedback linearization is proposed with reasonable assumptions. The model is obtained by exact feedback linearization. Mass adaptive control estimates ...
