    Abstract

    First, the dynamic performance of magnetic suspension systems, which are designed on the basis of linear feedback laws, are examined. Then, nonlinear control laws are developed to make the dynamics of a suspension system to be exactly that of a linear spring-mass-damper system. It is found that such control laws are not defined for all initial conditions of the supported mass. Lastly, it is shown that it is possible to achieve a true spring-mass-damper behavior for all initial conditions by using two electromagnets, but operating only one at a time.
