Active magnetic bearing technology is used more and more for its high performance, such as high speed and frictionless operation. But the rotor vibrates sometimes during operation due to the existence of residual unbalanced mass, which may affect the security of the whole system. In order to determine the distribution of residual unbalanced mass, this paper proposes a method based on frequency response, control current analysis, and image data processing. The theoretical and calculated results show the validity of the method.
