The Magnetic Levitation Apparatus Model 730 can
be directly applied to AMB research. The project creates real-time
algorithms using QNX, a real - time operating system, for linear
control of non-linear magnetic field created by the high flux
The project has 1. Hardwiring a +/- 12V power supply and an
operational amplifier circuit. 2. laser sensors 3. C code to O/P
voltage to MLD
AMB's have numerous advantages over typical mechanical bearing
like they are not subject to frictional losses, can be used to
compensate for rotor unbalance, and eliminate contamination
associated with lubricants and frictional wear.
