Abstract [en]

Researchers at Uppsala University are developing a flywheel energy storage device intended to be used in electrical vehicles. Kinetic energy storage technology has potential to make purely electric powertrain both more effective and efficient. While deployment of the third prototype is approaching there has been a request for a more precise and noise-immune circuitry to power active magnetic bearings that hold and stabilise the rotor. A similar circuit designed for powering electromagnets was recently developed at the Uppsala University’s Electricity department and is used as a template in development of the new active magnetic bearing driver circuit. Current measurement integration technique is tested and implemented as a way to increase circuit’s control feedback loop performance. To further boost precision and noise-immunity 0-20 mA current loop signals are adapted as the standard for output signals. Results of this project include a thorough analysis of the electromagnet driver circuit development, implementation of a new current sensing technique including an experimental self-inductance measurement, printed circuit board layout design and a full list of components necessary to power and control two sets of active magnetic bearings consisting of 8 individual electromagnets.
