A Novel Micro-g Emulation System Using Active Magnetic Compensator for Complex Space Operations
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 51, 185-194, 2016
Abstract
To perform the ground simulation experiments of the complex space operations, this work proposes a new active magnetic suspension compensator. The large-gap magnetic suspension compensator (LGMSC) is a conceptual design for a ground-based experiment which could be used to investigate the technology issues associated with accurate suspended element control at large gaps. This compensator can be used as the out-of-plane electromagnetic actuator for the 3-DOF fine stage in certain high precision positioning applications. Based on the equivalent current method, we explain the basics of the magnetic suspension compensator and analyze its advantages. A gravity compensator has been realized in a test setup that shows the feasibility of the chosen modeling technique and of magnetic gravity compensation.
