The controller design for a permanent/electromagnetic magnetic bearing system that suspends a high-speed rigid horizontal rotor is investigated. The key points to ensure the stability of a rotor using this type of magnetic bearing are discussed. To facilitate implementation, a decentralized state feedback algorithm is proposed to stabilize the inherently unstable magnetic suspension system. Experimental results for the controlled system show that the system operates well at rotor speeds of up to 10,000 rpm.
