magnetic bearings

What are magnetic bearings and how they work

Industrial electric motors are the largest electrical end-use accounting for approximately 45% of global electricity consumption. Existing high-speed electric motor solutions without active magnetic bearings are inefficient and expensive to maintain. Electricity and maintenance costs represent more than 70% of the total lifecycle costs. As they operate at high speeds (above 10,000 rpm), they are often subject to failures and breakdowns, compromising the productivity…
