N2 - The purpose of this paper is to propose a useful method to implement active magnetic bearings (AMBs) on an existing rotating shaft which rotates on conventional bearings. This is feasible if AMBs can produce the same reaction loads of conventional ones and if the size of vane is large enough to host an AMB. As this substitution could offer some difficulties due to the different size between magnetic bearings and conventional ones, a set of equations are performed to show that a variation of some parameters can solve this problem. The journal ratio is the geometrical parameter introduced to develop the present analysis. The variation of journal ratio does not produce a variation of the pole’s surface so that the reaction load does not change. The results are analyzed by numerical analysis by mathematical relationships involving the design parameters, magneto-static simulations and dynamic simulation on shaft when it is tested by disturbance rejection and reference tracking input in order to analyze the differences on dynamic behavior of the shaft on its suspended sections. Results show that the displacement pattern of the suspended sections remains unchanged, confirming that the reaction load, produced by pole expansion, remains the same varying the journal ratio.
