Abstract : Preliminary dynamic tests are described and the resulting problems are given for the induction motor freely supported by a radially passive magnetic system. The progre and problems for the one-dimensional models of each of the following systems are given: (1) radially active system with laminated iron armature, (2) resonant magnetic system, an (3) resonant electric system. The study of a radially active magnetic system using a permanent magnet rotor and air core coils is given in detail. T HE CONCLUSION IS REACHED THAT SUCH A SYSTEM MAY BE RULED OUT AS A PRACTICAL BEARING SYSTEM. (Author)
