Title: Magnetic bearing systems for gas turbine engines

As the thrust-to-weight ratio for next generation gas turbine engines is increased, engine designers are requiring lower weight, higher temperature lubrication systems. Magnetic bearing systems are under development to meet these needs. This paper describes some of the advanced features of these systems.
