Abstract

Characteristics of high-Tc superconducting levitation systems are no contact support and stable levitation without control. They can be applied to supporting mechanisms in machines, such as linear-drives and magnetically levitated trains. But small damping due to noncontact support and nonlinearity in the magnetic force can easily cause complicated phenomena of nonlinear dynamics. This research deals with nonlinear oscillation of a rigid bar supported at its both ends by electro-magnetic forces between superconductors and permanent magnets as a simple modeling of the above application. Deriving the equation of motion, we discussed an effect of nonlinearity in the magnetic force on dynamics of the levitated body: occurrence of combination resonance in the asymmetrical system. Numerical analyses and experiments were also carried out, and their results confirmed the above theoretical prediction.
