We used the Stokes polarimeter for measuring the magnetically linear birefringence and dichroism in composite magnetic fluids (CMFs). CMFs were prepared by doping nonmagnetic microspheres into pure magnetite ( Fe3O4) MFs. Experimental results show pure Fe3O4 MFs of different volume particle concentrations and CMFs doped with silica microspheres of equal quantity have similar variation trends for retardance and dichroism under ...

    The paper discusses the principles and theory of operation of the induction watt-hour meter. The problem of the meter broadly stated is to construct an electric motor the speed of the rotating member of which shall be directly proportional to the electric energy supplied to its windings, such proportionality to be maintained for all conditions of operation. The method of compensation is discussed and also the effect of change in frequency and wave shape. The rotating field principle on which some foreign instruments are based is treated mathematically and the construction of the shifting field meter is also described.

  • Measurement of Birefringence and Dichroism in Magnetic Fluid Doped with Silica Microsphere

    We used the Stokes polarimeter for measuring the magnetically linear birefringence and dichroism in composite magnetic fluids (CMFs). CMFs were prepared by doping nonmagnetic microspheres into pure magnetite ( Fe3O4) MFs. Experimental results show pure Fe3O4 MFs of different volume particle concentrations and CMFs doped with silica microspheres of equal quantity have similar variation trends for retardance and dichroism under magnetic field. The relation between birefringence and dichroism of CMFs doped with silica microspheres of different concentrations and those of pure Fe3O4 MF were investigated. It is found that the suppression of both retardance and dichroism increases with the increasing concentrations of silica microspheres in CMFs.

  • Mass determination with the magnetic levitation method

    The project for the realisation of the kilogram using the ldquosuperconducting magnetic levitation methodrdquo has been continued at MIKES. From the results of the subproject, calorimetric measurements, we have come to the conclusion that the realisation of the kilogram based on the levitation method is difficult with the present knowledge of energy losses in superconductors due to incomplete Meissner effect. New materials or measurement methods has to be found. A new improved test system under the consideration will be presented.

  • Inner Mechanism-Based Real Time Data Fusion of the Multisensors of Magnetic Bearings

    On the basis of introducing the basic principle of magnetic bearings the data model of the multisensors of magnetic bearings is established. The data are considered to obey normal distribution. Variance analysis method is proposed in the data fusion. The condition is derived to determine whether or not the sensors are wrong. It is pointed out that an industrial computer or two embedded single microprocessors can realize the real time control and data process. When two microprocessors are used one is used to control the rotor keeping at the balance place, and the other's task is to finish data fusion. The system will provide fault prompt when there exists fault according to the result of data fusion. In order to positioning the fault inner mechanism should be considered in fault analysis. Inner mechanism is mainly decided by the position arrangement of the sensors and vibration of the rotor. Some relative experimental results are given.

  • A fully functional micro transportation system with strider-like movement of micro containers

    This paper presents a novel micro transportation system (MTS), which can drive micro containers in both straight and curved paths, based on electrostatic and ratchet mechanism. The micro container, which has driving-wings and anti- reverse-wings attached to the central 'backbone', is driven by electrostatic actuator through the ratchet racks in perpendicular direction. The container with the length and width of 450 mum and 250 mum, respectively, moves like a water strider with desirable velocity up to 200 mum/sec in the straight and curved paths. In order to create the smart and flexible MTS, the elemental modules, e.g. straight, turning and separation modules with the same size (6 mm x 6 mm) have been developed. Therefore, different configurations of the MTS can be created flexibly by assembling the elemental modules.

  • New electromagnetic lift control method for magnetic levitation systems and magnetic bearings

    The classical approach to gap control in active magnetic bearings-including those in magnetic levitation (maglev) systems-is proportional-integral- derivative (pid) based current correction. This paper explores a new method that simplifies control electronics, based on repeatedly solving the governing system equations in approximations that are valid for the next 20 to 40 ms. The method simplifies the magnetic forces by using a Taylor approximation, one that can be evaluated rapidly by using multivariate splines. The simplified equations of motion are solved by the method of Frobenius. These simplified solutions are inverted to predict the voltage necessary to achieve a desired gap change in a specified time increment. Variations from this target position allow for an update on inertia and mass of the levitated object.

  • Study on module control of low-speed PEMS train

    For suspension control of low-speed PEMS train, the usual strategy is to separate the maglev module into two individual single points, which neglects the coupling effect of adjacent single point. To suppress the coupling effect, this paper suggests the method of designing control law considering the whole module. The simulation result verifies the validity of the new control law, which can suppress the coupling effect notably.
