    Losses in magnetic bearings, whether conventional or superconducting, are caused by any magnetic inhomogeneities in the direction of motion. These can be smoothed by inserting a permeable sheet between the magnet and superconductor. However, this will also have the effect of reducing the field...

    Superconducting magnetic bearings are normally built with bulk superconductors. Since coated conductors properties are far superior, we have proposed in a previous work the replacement of bulks for stacks of 2G wires in magnetic levitation devices. A major limitation of this replacement lies in...

    Magnetic bearing systems incorporate auxiliary bearings to prevent physical interaction between rotor and stator laminations. Rotor/auxiliary bearing contacts may occur when a magnetic bearing still retains a full control capability. To actively return the rotor to a non-contacting state it is...
