Magnetic bearing

  1. Nov 12, 2014 #1
    Greetings, I want to understand magnetic bearings better , i used google search but couldnt find a simple and satisfying picture or diagram.
    Could someone please explain the very basics? I would prefer in terms of permanent magnets rather than electromagnets because that would simplify the picture.

    If we have a rotating shaft and a so called sator does the shaft and stator has to be aligned with the same poles of magnets in a symmetrical way so hat each stator pole would push equally from all sides and the rotor shaft would saty right in the middle or what?

    thank you.
