报告题目：Active Magnetic Bearings: Opportunities and Challenges for Control Theory
内容简介：Active magnetic bearings (AMBs), because of their many advantages over traditional mechanical bearings, have found many applications in industries. However, they also pose significant challenges, and present opportunities too, to control theory. In this talk, we introduce the basic principles and main features of active magnetic bearings, explain how these features motivate the many industrial applications, and point out the challenges and opportunities associated with the applications for control theory. Several successful examples in controlling AMB systems will also be reviewed.
