This paper describes different passive magnetic bearing configurations and associated pros and cons. It details the techniques used by different inventors to overcome the limitations of passive magnetic bearing, such as low damping, low stiffness and its inherent instability. To overcome these limitations different hybridization techniques used by different researchers have been illustrated. Finally, a new hybrid bearing configuration invented by the authors has been described.
