Abstract

In previous study, non-contact rotating system consisting of the ring-shaped high temperature superconducting (HTS) bulks, ring-shaped permanent magnets (PMs) and stator coil was proposed. In this system, HTS bulks were magnetized by PMs and PMs were levitated with strong restoring force. In our previous study, we have constructed the rotating system with the ring-shaped HTS bulks with ID 20 mm, OD 60 mm, and 15-mm thickness. However, since these bulks costs too much, we switched to use HTS bulks with ID 20 mm, OD 60 mm, and 5-mm-thickness to miniaturize the system. However, this system have potential to fail the radial stability of rotating shaft. Therefore, we focused on the rotating and the radial restoring force in terms of the stability of the rotating shaft in the rotating system with 5-mm thickness HTS bulks.
