Special Issue "Magnetic Bearing Actuators"
A special issue of Actuators (ISSN 2076-0825).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
Active magnetic bearings have several distinguishable advantages over other bearings—complete contact-free suspension of a rotating object, controllable and observable bearing force, lubrication-free and maintenance-free characteristics, etc. The range of applications steadily increases and novel systems are still being developed. This Special Issue is aimed at presenting this technology with a focus on the various aspects of actuators: Geometric design, choice of materials, modeling, analysis, measurement, control, and evaluation. Linear magnetic bearings for non-rotating objects are also targeted, even though “magnetic bearing” implies a rotating object.
Encouraged contributions related (but not limited) to novel configurations/functions, designs for special-condition operations, power amplifier and drive schemes, sensing/estimating techniques, sophisticated control schemes, coupled with motor drive, minimization of loss, and reduction of hardware, are welcome.Prof. Takeshi Mizuno
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 quarterly 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 1000 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.
