Abstract

Problem statement: The aim of the study was to model an electromagnetic suspension system. The electromagnetic system consists of an electromagnet which was attracted an iron object which was freely suspended in air. Approach: Modelling a magnetic system requires modelling the magnetic force characteristics and the flux characteristics. The force characteristics were to be produced from a nonlinear flux characteristic-current. Results: The modelling of the system was accomplished and simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK. Conclusion: Using look-up tables proves to give good results in modelling a magnetic suspension system.
