With an increase in the number of high speed applications, researchers have been concentrating on permanent magnet bearings due to their suitability. This paper presents a mathematical model of a permanent magnet bearing made of ring magnets with radial polarizations. Coulombian model and vector approach are used to estimate the force, moment and stiffness. A MATLAB code is developed for evaluating the envisaged parameters for three degrees (translational) of freedom of the rotor. Comparison of force and stiffness results of the presented model with that reported in the literature and also with the results of 3D finite element analysis shows good agreement. Then, it is extended to analyse stacked ring magnets with alternate radial polarizations. Finally, the cross coupled stiffness values in addition to the principal stiffness values are presented for the elementary structure and also for stacked structure with three ring permanent magnets with alternate radial polarizations.
