Abstract:

The results of continued studies on several aspects of magnetic balance systems are presented. The aspects studied include 1 detailed studies of several classes of optical model position sensors 2 development and proof testing of an automatic model injection and retrieval system and 3 detailed study of methods of producing roll torque including compatability with existing and future magnetic balance systems and experimental verification of the design on bench tests. It is concluded that two of the classes of optical position sensing systems can meet the desired sensitivity but that these systems are somewhat geometry dependant. A recommendation for a system that seems to overcome these difficulties is made. Author
