Contactless Braking System, Eddy Current


This paper presentation explores the working principle contactless braking system with eddy current. Conventional braking system uses friction to slow down the revolving object. Stopping is mainly on the basis of contact surface that were designed. In conventional braking system, the energy given to operate the brake is enormous. This will leads to change the brake liner frequently. For this issue we are in the move to contactless braking system. In friction brakes, which apply pressure on two separate pressure plates, eddy current brakes reduces the speed of an object by creating eddy currents through electromagnetic induction which create resistance, and in turn either heat or electricity. In this paper, linear magnetized mover is applied to eddy current braking system for high speed.
