    Active magnetic bearing is a study of object under levitation. Object under levitation simply mean the object are floating under some condition and for this project the object floats under magnetic field condition. Over the years human are trying to invent motors and machines that are could produce less losses of energy due to frictions and heats. The sudden emergence of active magnetic bearing provides an opportunity to achieve the dreams of efficient machine and motors. Active magnetic bearing is levitating rotor without any physical contact and able to rotate at high speed. This is reducing friction, heat loss and maintenance. Active magnetic bearing has been widely use and apply in many industries. This project idea is to simulate the active magnetic bearing system using dynamic modelling and simulate under Matlab environment to study the behaviour of the system. This project requires this system to be PID controller to be tuned using PSO method and study the behaviour of the PID parameter with the PSO parameter.
