We have formulated and implemented a control system for levitation and motion control of a disk magnet using a planar array of electromagnetic coils and an optical localizer to provide real time position feedback. The significance of this work is that this is the first magnetic levitation system which controls the orientation and position of a levitated body throughout a workspace volume whose dimensions are multiples of those of the levitated body in all directions. Furthermore, the horizontal… CONTINUE READING
