The magnetic bearing features within MADYN 2000 are:

  • Design of controllers in the frequency domain with defined, practically proven controller building blocks (analogue as well as digital)
  • Modelling of synchronous bearing characteristics (e.g. unbalance force rejection controls)
  • Modelling of sensors and actuators for any position
  • Arbitrary combination of sensors and actuators to model tilting translation control for separate controls of tilting and parallel modes or general MIMO controllers
  • Support and assessment of controller designs by means of contrallability / observability tables, sensitivity plots according to ISO 14839-3 and Nyquist plots
  • Optimization of controller parameters
