In the present research work, analytical equations have been developed for design and optimization of radial axial polarized passive magnetic bearing (PMB) with single layer for facilitating easy and quick solution, obviating the need of costly software. Seven design variables: eccentricity, rotor width, stator width, rotor length, stator length, clearance, and mean radius were identified as the main factors affecting the design and were thus considered in the development of analytical equations. The results obtained from the developed analytical equations have been validated with the published results. The optimization of the bearing design, with minimization of magnet volume as the objective function, was carried out to demonstrate the accuracy and usefulness of the developed equations.
