1. Y. Takayama, S. Kijimoto, S. Ishikawa, Eddy Current Damper Model of Ring Magnet and Coaxially Moving Conducting Disk, IEEE Transactions on Magnetics , 10.1109/TMAG.2021.3058739, 2021.02, An eddy current damper comprising a magnet and a conducting plate moving perpendicularly to it is called a perpendicular-motion-type eddy current damper, whereas one with a magnet and a conducting plate moving parallel to it is called a parallel-motion-type eddy current damper. In this paper, a method of using magnetic vector potentials in a stationary-conductor coordinate system to obtain easily the damping coefficient (the A method) is proposed and applied to a perpendicular-motion-type eddy current damper comprising a ring magnet and conducting disk. The previously proposed coil method is also applied. Because both methods utilize the magnetic flux densities and magnetic vector potentials obtained using a circular current loop, they cannot be considered to be the effect of the magnetic field generated by eddy currents on the damping coefficients. However, the damping coefficients were in good agreement with those obtained using a three-dimensional finite element method (3D-FEM). Hence, the effect of the secondary magnetic field can be ignored. Moreover, the A method is as precise as the 3D-FEM, is less complicated, and does not require an air region and boundary conditions for computation. Additionally, although the errors of the damping ratios calculated from measured data and the A method were 17 %, the error of the modified damping ratios obtained by applying the equivalent mass of the disk to the A method decreased to 6 %..

, 2013.10, It is recognized that unstable vibration occurs at a rotating speed above the major critical
speed by a rotating-conducting-disk type magnetic damper, but not by a rotating-circular-
magnet type magnetic damper. In addition, magnetic dampers generally have
relatively poor damping performance. In the present work, two new rotating-circularmagnet
type magnetic dampers, (which consist of a combined hollow cylinder magnet
with alternating directional magnetic poles), are introduced and their design method is
presented. Applying the modeling method that the authors have been studying, a prototype
magnetic damper with a combined magnet is fabricated and the damping ratios from
the analytical results agree well with those from the experimental results. Rotating tests
are performed and it is confirmed that unstable vibration does not occur at a rotating
speed of more than twice the major critical speed. Based on these findings, an optimally
designed magnetic damper with a combined magnet is developed and a damping ratio of
0.25 (damping coefficient of 215 Ns/m) is achieved..

1. Modeling of Parallel Motion Type Magnetic Damper Composed of Conducting Plate and Magnets with Steel Plates
Eddy currents are generated by the relative motion of a conducting plate and a magnet. Magnetic damper is a device that utilizes the magnetic drag force produced by the eddy current. The author call the magnetic damper moving parallel to the conducting disk the parallel-motion type magnetic damper. The author previously proposed the vector potential method for magnetic damper. The method has a good point that magnetic damping force can be calculated accuracy when a parallel-motion type magnetic damper is composed of rectangular magnets with alternating directional magnetic poles and a conducting plate. Generally ferromagnetic metal, for example a steel plate (S45C), has a property known as concentrating magnetic flux into itself. In this paper, using image method, we propose the new vector potential method for the magnetic damper with steel plates outside the rectangular magnets with alternating directional magnetic poles. The image method is a method for calculating a magnetic field by adding image currents in order to satisfy the boundary conditions between a magnetic material area and an air area in the magnetic field and the vector potential field. Damping ratios calculated by the new vector potential method are compared to the tests. As a result, analytical results are in good agreement with the experimental results..
