For on-line identification of the current and position stiffnesses in an active magnetic bearing (AMB) system equipped with four pairs of built-in radial magnetic force transducers, a modified least-mean-squares (LMS) algorithm is proposed. The algorithm, which is based on a simple linearised magnetic force equation, utilizes three kinds of measured signals, i.e. rotor displacement, control current and magnetic force. The simulation and experimental results show that the proposed algorithm is very simple and effective in adaptively identifying the current and position stiffnesses of the AMB.
