This paper presents the cooperative control between the active magnetic bearing system and the permanent magnet synchronous drive. More specifically, the coupling between the vibration control and sensorless drive control is considered since both systems have the ability to estimate the angular speed. The coupling of the estimated speed in each controller is considered. Also, a modified start-up procedure for the sensorless vector control had to be developed when the drive is combined with the AMB system to accommodate the low friction which does not yield damping of the speed perturbation at start-up. Simulation results are presented for the developed control using detailed models for both systems
