Brainstorm Results Research Notes Bearing..?

It’s primary purpose is to reduce friction and at the same time should control the rate of wear of shaft. Bearings are made to support radial loads, thrust loads, or combined radial-thrust loads. Ball Bearings A ball bearing is a type of rolling-element bearing that uses balls to maintain the separation between the bearing races. Roller Bearings A roller bearing is a type of rolling-element bearing that uses cylinders to maintain the separation between the bearing races. Fluid Bearings Fluid bearings are bearings which support the bearing's loads solely on a thin layer of liquid or gas.They can be broadly classified as fluid dynamic bearings or hydrostatic bearings. Disadvantages concerning the conventional mechanical bearings are... A probable solution is Magnetic Bearing... Magnetic Bearings..? A magnetic bearing is a bearing which supports a load using magnetic levitation i.e., without physical contact; for example, they can levitate a rotating shaft and permit relative motion with very low friction and no mechanical wear.

For any given operating point it is possible, according to the separation criterion, to compensate a static load in any direction with a counteracting force from permanent magnets alone without the introduction of any instability.
According to the Earnshaw stability criterion permanent magnets can also be used to achieve stability in all but one degree of freedom.
Thus, according to the same stability criterion, a stabilizing second derivative of the magnetic energy potential is required in at least one direction, and it has to be of non- magnetostatic nature.
A second derivative of an energy potential is a force derivative.
Eddy currents can provide stiffness, which is a force derivative of electrodynamic nature.
A force derivative does not require a non-zero force.
Without force there is no need for eddy currents.
Without eddy currents there are no losses. PRINCIPLE BEHIND ZERO LOSS BEARING OPERATION “Hope this technology will reach the market soon at a lower price with much more improvements done.” For Spindles & Turbines For Hollow Shafts and Pumps For Flywheels The Flying Byke Maglev Wind Turbine
