Fail Safe, High Temperature Magnetic Bearing for High Efficiency Gas Turbine Engine Applications Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper contributes to the magnetic bearing literature in two distinct areas: high temperature and redundant actuation. Design considerations test results are given for the first published combined 538°C (1000°F)-high speed rotating test performance of a magnetic bearing. Secondly, a significant extension of the flux isolation based, redundant actuator control algorithm is proposed to eliminate the prior deficiency of changing position stiffness after failure.
