How to Model Magnetic Bearings in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Magnetic bearings are used in many industrial applications, including power generation, petroleum refinement, turbomachinery, pumps, and flywheel energy storage systems. Unlike mechanical bearings, these types of bearings support moving loads without physical contact through magnetic levitation. Valued for their frictionless operation and ability to run without lubrication, magnetic bearings are a low-maintenance alternative to mechanical bearings with a longer lifespan. Learn how to calculate design parameters like magnetic forces, torque, and magnetic stiffness using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software.
