Bottom Line: Due to the unique mechanical structure of the sensor, the output signal of the sensor can be directed without a slip ring, which avoids signal weakening effect.The sensitivity of the sensor is calibrated by torsional pendulum and angle sensor, yielding an experimental result of about 0.88 mV/(rad·s(-2)).Experimental result confirms the operating principle of the sensor and indicates that the sensor has good practicability.

ABSTRACT
Angular acceleration is an important parameter for status monitoring and fault diagnosis of rotary machinery. Therefore, we developed a novel permanent magnetic angular acceleration sensor, which is without rotation angle limitations and could directly measure the instantaneous angular acceleration of the rotating system. The sensor rotor only needs to be coaxially connected with the rotating system, which enables convenient sensor installation. For the cup structure of the sensor rotor, it has a relatively small rotational inertia. Due to the unique mechanical structure of the sensor, the output signal of the sensor can be directed without a slip ring, which avoids signal weakening effect. In this paper, the operating principle of the sensor is described, and simulated using finite element method. The sensitivity of the sensor is calibrated by torsional pendulum and angle sensor, yielding an experimental result of about 0.88 mV/(rad·s(-2)). Finally, the angular acceleration of the actual rotating system has been tested, using both a single-phase asynchronous motor and a step motor. Experimental result confirms the operating principle of the sensor and indicates that the sensor has good practicability.

Mentions: The rotating machine is a three-phase step motor, whose resistance of each winding is 45 Ω. The cup-shaped rotor of sensor is connected with the motor coaxially. As shown in Figure 20, each component is labeled as (17) step motor drive controller, (18) step motor, (19) coupling, (20) angular acceleration sensor and (21) digital oscilloscope. Figure 21 shows the induced voltage of the angular acceleration sensor when the step motor in continuous operation mode (pulse frequency f = 702 Hz).
