Robust fuzzy control of a magnetic bearing system subject to harmonic disturbances Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper proposes a robust fuzzy logic based control scheme for a rotating active magnetic bearing(AMB) system. We represent the nonlinear magnetic bearing by means of a Takagi-Sugeno-Kang(TSK) fuzzy model. Subsequently a systematic synthesis procedure is used to derive a nonlinear fuzzy logic control strategy that incorporates an integral control for improved tracking. Experimentation and simulation results demonstrate that the proposed fuzzy controller yields robustness against harmonic disturbances and parameter uncertainty.
