In this paper, an analytical model for calculating eddy current loss in magnetic thrust bearings (MTBs) is presented. The surface magnetic field intensity, considering the skin effect of eddy current, is varying with the frequency and can be calculated by effective reluctance method. The magnetic field distribution and eddy current loss can be obtained from it. Finally, the validity of the model is verified by the finite element method (FEM) simulation and experimental results.
