Magnetic bearings for smart aero engines

Magnetic bearings for smart aero engines

Objective

This project will focus on the design of AMBs for aero-engines, and will include the development of load-sharing bearings, the design and demonstration of AMBs for high-temperature environments and the dynamic modelling of the complete system, consisting of the rotor, AMBs, controller, load-sharing bearings, support housing and casing. To enable designers to optimise the AMB size and performance, the modelling tools will be packaged in a user-friendly format for industrial design application. In addition, new innovative technologies will be included in order to take advantage of the benefits of using the AMBs for diagnosis, prognosis and correction functions, by incorporating SMART machine technology for aero-engines.
