Rastogi, A and Alonso, DR and Coombs, TA and Campbell, AM (2003) Axial and journal bearings for superconducting flywheel systems. IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity, 13. pp. 2267-2270. ISSN 1051-8223Full text not available from this repository.
Axial and journal bearings have been investigated for use in superconducting flywheel systems. Our test rig comprises of an Evershed type magnetic bearing used to levitate a 35 kg rotor. The stabilizing forces are provided by superconducting axial and journal bearings. In this study we focus on the vertical stiffness measurements and explore the use of journal bearings. The journal bearing consists of radial magnets with alternating polarities. Our results indicate that this type of journal bearing can effectively stabilize the rotor. Spin-down test shows a linear behavior.
