A fuzzy anti-windup (AW) compensator is proposed and applied to the embedded cylindrical-array magnetic actuator (ECAMA) to ensure the superior performance of spindle position regulation for milling machines under actuator saturation. Since ECAMA is a type of active magnetic bearing (AMB), the supplied coil current and the induced magnetic force are both limited by the maximum current and power output of the AMB and the associated amplifier. Once the magnetic actuator is saturated, the required control input cannot be realized by ECAMA and may lead to drastic tremble of spindle position. In this work, an AW compensator, based on fuzzy logic algorithm, is therefore proposed to rectify the control input to ECAMA. By employing commercial software MATLAB/Simulink and signal processing interface, Module DS1104 by dSPACE, the efficacy of the fuzzy AW compensation is practically verified by intensive experiments.
