This paper deals with modeling of bearingless synchronous reluctance motors with a combined winding. A method to link an existing model used for the separated windings structure to the combined winding structure is proposed. A dynamic model applicable for the purposes of time-domain simulation, model-based control design, and real-time control is presented. The finite-element method (FEM) is used to validate the proposed model and to show the feasibility of the considered slice motor type, including passive stability of axial movement and tilting, force and torque production, and ripple. Applicability of the developed model in control design is demonstrated. The model is validated by means of experiments.
