The Fault-Tolerant Control of Magnetic Bearings With Reduced Controller Outputs Academic Article uri icon


  • The fault-tolerant control scheme utilizes grouping of currents to reduce the required number of controller outputs. Reduced current distribution matrices can be calculated with the constraint conditions of the controller outputs and the necessary condition for linearization. Decoupling chokes are not required for the control scheme with grouped currents since fluxes are isolated in C-cores. By reducing controller outputs and removing decoupling chokes the fault-tolerant control scheme is more efficient and practical in terms of industrial applications. © 2001 ASME.
