Conical magnetic bearings with radial and thrust (axial) control are discussed. First a model of the conical bearing is made in state variable form. Airgap flux, airgap displacement, and velocity are used as state variables. A control method based on recent developments in control theory is proposed. The method is called Q-parameterization theory and is used to design a stabilizing controller for the system which, without control, is unstable in nature. The controller parameters are chosen using console (a software tandem for interactive optimization-based design) so that all design requirements are satisfied. Digital simulation was used to verify the proposed control method. Transient responses, forced responses in all three directions (vertical, horizontal, and axial), and the interactions between them are obtained. The results obtained are satisfactory and suggest the robustness of the proposed technique
