Current state of research and teaching activities

My classes are as follows: Introduction to Mechanical Engineering, Physics for Mechanical Engineers II, Machine Drawing I, Manufacturing Practice II, Experiments in Mechanical Engineering I, Experiments in Mechanical Engineering II for undergraduate and Advanced electromagnetic application I, II.
These are all shared classes.
I am currently a member of Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, The Society of Instrument and Control Engineers and The Japan Society of Applied Electromagnetics and Mechanics. My research interests are as follows: Active Magnetic Levitation, Active Magnetic bearing, Self-Bearing Motor (Combined Motor-Bearing) and Their Self-Sensing Control. Recently, I am proposing and developing 5 DOF self-bearing motor which can realize extensive downsizing and high-rotation of the active magnetic bearing system.

Development of 5-DOF self-bearing motor which is realizable with miniaturizing and high performance simultaneously A 5-DOF self-bearing motor has been proposed to achieve a compact active magnetic bearing (AMB) system. The 5-DOF self-bearing motor possesses the functions of a motor, two radial AMBs, and an axial AMB. Therefore, it is possible to downsize the AMB system dramatically with maintaining high performance. 2009/07-2010/03

Research presentations

  1. Oral presentation(general) Proposal on Homopolar Type Hybrid 5-DOF Self-Bearing Motor 24th Symposium on Electromagnetics and Dynamics 2012/05/17 In this paper, homopolar type hybrid 5-DOF self-bearing motor is proposed. The rotor consists of two reluctance rotors, two circular discs, and a permanent magnet. It possesses a motor, two radial magnetic bearings, and an axial magnetic bearing. The analytical results show the feasibility of a compact and high reliable actuator for an artificial heart pump.
  2. Oral presentation(general) Study on Permanent Magnet Arrangement for IPM Type 5-DOF Self-bearing Motor Dynamics and Design Conference 2011 2011/09/07 The 5-DOF self-bearing motor possesses the functions of a motor, two radial AMBs, and an axial AMB. Therefore, it is possible to miniaturize the AMB system with maintaining high performance. In this paper, an interior permanent magnet (IPM) type 5-DOF self-bearing motor is proposed. The IPM rotor generates bias fluxes to not only the radial direction but also the overhanging stator direction without side surface permanent magnets. Optimum configuration of the permanent magnets is analyzed using 3 dimensional finite element method. The results show the feasibility of the more compact and highly-reliable 5-DOF self-bearing motor.
