State Space Adaptive Control for a Lumped Mass Rotor Excited by Nonconservative Cross-Coupling Forces


An adaptive pole-assignment controller is presented in conjunction with a state space model identification for an active magnetic bearing system, consisting of a single mass suspended in an active magnetic bearing excited by nonconservative cross-coupling forces. Simulation results show the success of this algorithm for parameter changes in closed loop operation with system noise but without set point changes.
