Abstract

This paper shows a comparison based on dynamic behaviour of a rotating shaft when it is suspended by 4-axisactive magnetic bearings under several control systems. The control systems used are μ-synthesis, loop shaping designprocedure and Sub(H∞) robust control with the introduction of uncertainties on position and current gains of the actuators.Each of these controllers is characterized by four input signals and four output signals and the introduction of uncertaintieson displacement gain and current gain is due to torn and worn of the components during the time, which can lead the entiresystem to instability phenomena. The comparison of the performances is obtained through the introduction of same weightingfunction for all three control systems. All simulations and results are performed by MATLab.
