Abstract

Conventional pumps having external drive motors experience problems due to bearing noise. In addition failure of bearings and seals can lead to limited operational reliability and impaired integrity of these pumps. Pumps using DC brushless motors and magnetic bearings offer means of overcoming these problems. A design of a pump having a DC brushless motor and magnetic bearings with a potential for naval applications in ships and submarines is discussed. Attention is given to the selection of the magnetic bearings suitable for achieving active noise cancellation.
