In this chapter, based on the Halbach magnetic array, the active and passive hybrid vibration isolation technology for WD618 diesel engine is studied. Firstly, the active and passive hybrid vibration isolators based on Halbach magnetic array is designed. The content includes design requirements, scheme design, and design method; design suitable power amplifier for isolators and verify whether the performance index requirements are met and test the resistance, inductance, stiffness, and static thrust of isolators; the vibration isolation effect of the vibration isolator was tested through a single-degree-of-freedom vibration isolation experiment.
