Special Issue "Active Magnetic Bearing Actuators"
A special issue of Actuators (ISSN 2076-0825).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2016).
As active magnetic bearings become a mature commercial technology, the range of application and sophistication of design steadily increases. This has produced many different magnetic topologies, design optimization strategies, and field control schemes. This Special Issue is aimed at taking stock of this art, with a particular emphasis on the actuator: The magnetic component and the associated drive electronics. Although passive and electrodynamic magnetic bearings are also increasingly important, the focus here will be on fully active actuators which use some combination of magnetically permeable materials, permanent magnets, and powered coils to produce forces on a rotor or other suspended object. Contributions are particularly encourage related (but not limited) to: scaling issues, low and high pole count, loss estimation and mitigation, high and very low flux density designs, high and very low temperature designs, amplifier schemes, such as transconductance and transpermeance, coupled switching arrays, inversion, and control of coupled actuators.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Actuators is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
