Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The electromagnetic actuator has the advantages of good controllability, a wide adaptive frequency band, sensitive response, large control force, small volume and weight, and easily controllable complex vibration and noise. It is widely used in power equipment such as energy, ships, aerospace and so on. The recent research literature has provided a huge amount of contributions related to the basic characterization of such devices, whilst the current ongoing research is devoted to various applications of the electromagnetic actuator, addressing specific needs and issues.

The aim of the present Special Issue is to collect original papers concerned with the application of various types of electromagnetic actuators to vibration control, without any limitation on the specific application field. Theoretical, numerical and experimental contributions are welcome. Modern design, modeling, simulation and control concerned with electromagnetic actuators are particularly encouraged, for both numerical and experimental data.

A suspension flux internal model control method is proposed to address the problem of the strong coupling of a single-winding bearingless flux-switching permanent magnet motor leading to a significant ripple of the rotor radial displacement. Firstly, based on air-gap magnetic field modulation theory, the stator flux equation considering rotor dynamic eccentricity is established to reveal the relationship between the eccentric rotor and the magnetic field. Secondly, according to the dynamic characteristics of the motor and the variation law of the air-gap magnetic field, the suspension-plane flux is substituted into the rotor dynamic model, and the suspension flux-dynamics internal model and corresponding output are constructed, respectively. Finally, a complete control strategy is established, and the rotor is stably suspended by PWM control. The simulation and experimental results show that the proposed method has better steady-state and dynamic performance than traditional PID control, and the maximum radial displacement ripples of the rotor are reduced by 53% and 50% in steady-state and dynamic operation.

Series iron core reactors are one of the most commonly used electrical equipments in power systems, which can limit short-circuit currents and suppress harmonic waves from capacitor banks. However, the vibration of the reactor will not only generate noise pollution but also diminish the service life of the reactor and jeopardize power system safety. In order to reduce the vibration noise in the core disc region of the reactor, the vibration characteristics of a core reactor are calculated by modifying the anisotropy parameters of the Young’s modulus of the core disc lamellar structure and introducing the core magnetostriction effect based on the simulation analysis method of electromagnetic and mechanical coupling. A detachable single-phase series core reactor model is established, and the validity of the simulation calculation is measured and verified. At the same time, from the perspective of improving the air gap size of the series core reactor and the arrangement of electrical steel sheets, the corresponding iron core vibration reduction scheme is given. The average vibration reduction in the reactor is about 11.6% after comprehensive improvement according to the vibration reduction scheme, which provides an effective method for realizing the vibration and noise reduction in the reactor.

The advantages of the proposed novel magnetic energy-harvesting suspension (MEHS) are high safety, compact structure and convenient maintenance, compared with the previous studies. However, the force generated by the energy harvester with harvesting energy can affect the motion of the mechanical system. Therefore, this paper aims to analyze the ride comfort and road handling of the MEHS, and investigates the dynamic performance of the MEHS. Firstly, the structure and the working principle of the MEHS are illustrated and introduced, and the dynamic mechanism of the quarter-vehicle with the MEHS is revealed and investigated. Secondly, the effects of the electromechanical coupling coefficient and external load resistance on the dynamic performance are investigated by numerical calculation. An experimental setup is established to verify the dynamic performance of the proposed MEHS. According to the experimental results, the dynamic performance of the suspension is contradictory with the increase of the external load resistance at the periodic frequency 7 Hz. And compared with the passive suspension, the dynamic performance of the MEHS is changed at various excitations, in which the sprung displacement and relative dynamic load of the tire of MEHS at the periodic frequency 3.3 Hz are reduced by 39.45% and 41.18%, respectively. Overall, the external load resistance of the proposed MEHS can be utilized to realize the variable damping of the suspension system and reduce the effect of vibration on the suspension system at the resonance frequency. And the dynamic performance has been verified in the laboratory, which lays the foundation for the dynamic analysis in a real vehicle. Full article
