In this paper, a bearingless drive for high-speed applications with high purity and special chemical demands is introduced. To achieve high rotational speeds with low losses, a slotless bearingless disk drive with toroidal windings is used. We present the working principle of the bearingless drive as well as a model for calculating the achievable drive(More)
In this paper, different winding and magnet topologies are analyzed and compared for a slotless bearingless disk drive with toroidal windings. Basis of the studies is a six phase motor with a diametrically magnetized one-pole-pair rotor. Due to the absence of mechanical bearings, the motor is suitable for applications with high purity and special chemical(More)
In this paper, winding topologies for one- and two-pole-pair rotors are analyzed and compared for a slotless bearingless disk drive with toroidal windings. The basis of the studies is a six-phase motor with a diametrically magnetized one-pole-pair rotor. Due to the absence of mechanical bearings and the significantly large air-gap capability, the motor is(More)
The ongoing miniaturization trend of electric machines increases the demand for higher rotational speeds to provide a required power level at decreased size. The goal of this project is to push the limits of rotor miniaturization by researching new concepts for bearingless machines with ultra-high rotational speeds exceeding 25 million rotations per minute(More)
The miniaturization trend of electric machines increases the demand for higher rotational speeds to provide a desired mechanical power level at decreased size. To push the limits of rotor miniaturization, new concepts for an ultra-high speed motor are researched, which employs sub-millimeter size rotors and is capable of achieving rotational speeds above 25(More)
