Control of Radial Force in Double Stator Type Bearingless Switched Reluctance Motor Peng, Wei; Xu, Zhenyao; Lee, Dong-Hee; Ahn, Jin-Woo;
Modeling and control of radial force in the double stator type bearingless switched reluctance motor (BLSRM) is researched. The rotational torque is controlled independently from the radial force control. And the radial force is constant which is independent from the rotor position. In order to realize steady suspension, analytical models of torque and radial force for the proposed structure are derived. Meanwhile, in order to realize steady suspension, control scheme for proposed BLSRM is proposed. In the control method, the radial force can be controlled in arbitrary direction and magnitude by selecting some combinations of radial force windings. The validities of structure and control method are verified by the experimental results.
