The calculation of the FEMS dynamics, where the electromagnet is only a part of the control system that contains the power source, the mechanical system, the forced control device and the electromagnet itself, is reduced to a solution of coupled differential equations.
In the formula (12), [[mu].sub.0]is the vacuum permeability, N is the number of turns, [A.sub.m] is the pole area of the suspension electromagnet, c is the suspension gap, [I.sub.e] is the measured current for the suspension electromagnet.
The bias flux in this actuator is generated by axially polarized permanent magnets arranged around the circumference of the electromagnet. The bias flux flows into the shaft through a dead (solid, uncontrolled) pole and returns through a laminated path into the electromagnet.
