An LPV (Linear Parameter Varying) controller design example for a Magnetic Bearing System is presented. A linear model of the system including bending modes and imbalance is described. Simulations and experimental results show the usefulness of the LPV method with eigenvalue clustering constraints in spite of the limited rotation rate range. The results show that this method facilitates simulation and allows implementation. Conclusions are drawn on the limited range for the rotation rate the LPV controller allows for.
