In an eddy current brake the magnetic field may syetem created by a permanent magnetor an frictiojless so the braking force can be turned on and off or varied by varying the electric current in the electromagnet’s windings. The converter provides three-phase power to the linear alternator, via appropriate control of power electronic switches which may be controlled by the wheel controller. The stator of linear induction alternator acts as an inductor such that the alternator works at very large slip frequency to deliberately generate higher losses in the alternator.

The frictionless electromagnetic braking system of claim 8wherein one inverter controls the first and second linear alternators. This disclosure pertains to an enhanced braking system in a vehicle or a moving device, and more specifically to a frictionless brake system employing electromagnetism.

This wheel brake housing may further include a wheel brake controller and a power electronics converter. In typical experiments, students measure the slower time of fall of the magnet through a copper tube compared with a cardboard tube, and may use an oscilloscope to observe the pulse of eddy current induced in a loop of wire wound around the pipe when the magnet falls through.

Collectively, these two alternators form a double-side linear induction alternator. The wheel brake controller controls the wheel inverter to produce the required braking force in the linear alternator at very large slip frequency to produce high losses and zero to negligible output power.

Vehicular brake systems incorporating frictional or abrasive devices are known in the art. One aspect of the present invention pertains to enhancing braking systems in a vehicle or a moving object. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The method of claim 19, further comprising controlling, via the first wheel controller, circulation of a self-excitation current electromagentic the double-side induction generator. The kinetic energy of the moving vehicle is converted to heat by the eddy current flowing through the electrical resistance of the rail, which leads to a warming of the rail.

The apparatus of claim 15wherein responsive to the first control signal, the first inverter is to control a slip trictionless of the first induction generator. Although the linear alternator can have a different number of phases, in one embodiment of this system, the linear induction alternators are 3-phase.

The range of distance can be from about 0. If the brake pads are not timely changed, the braking system of the vehicle will not work properly and can cause fatal accidents.

The wheel brake controller controls the wheel inverter to produce the required braking force in the linear alternator at very large e,ectromagnetic frequency to produce high losses and zero to negligible output power.

In this embodiment, the inverter is controlled to adjust the active power for balancing the generated power and losses of alternator and attached power electronics converter while maintaining the required braking force. Friictionless it is quite smaller in size compared to the traditional braking systems.

American Journal of Physics. In an embodiment, the wheel controller may be implemented as one or more integrated circuits such as a microcontroller unit.

It receives the signal with information of the required braking force from the master brake controller. This application claims the benefit of U.

Eddy current brake

The wheel controller may receive a required braking force command from a master brake controller and control corresponding power electronics converter s to produce a required braking force. Another objective of this invention is to reduce the wear on the parts as well as to save energy. At the same time, the inverter supplies the appropriate excitation currents to the linear induction alternators.

Here we use the principle of electromagnetism to achieve friction less braking. Linear alternators capture the car’s kinetic energy upon the driver’s, or the operator’s, input. Besides, the vehicle power train architecture has to be changed and bulky batteries are needed.

However, because of alternator limitation as well as the amount of charge that battery can accept, these ekectromagnetic can produce small braking force which is useful for only in soft braking. In an embodiment, optimum braking may be achieved by matching brake force distribution with dynamic vehicle weight distribution.

By Lenz’s lawthe circulating currents will create their own magnetic field which opposes the field of the magnet. The topology of power electronics converter can also be any other type. In another embodiment, the generated power can be used to charge a battery or can be burned into braking resistors. An enhanced and reliable brake system that stops the car quickly in a controlled manner and without adding the delay is desired.

Electrimagnetic is the eddy current. Trailer vehicle brake-control module.

The amount of required braking force is communicated to wheel brake controllers. The brake controller may be integrated into the wheel brake or any other location in the vehicle. The system only requires energy for initial excitation that can be provided by self-excitation of an induction alternator or an auxiliary battery or other source of energy. In contrast, at the trailing edge right sidethe clockwise current causes a magnetic field pointed down, in the same direction as the magnet’s field, creating an attractive force between the sheet and the trailing edge of the magnet.

The driver input may be received by brake pedal translation or driver force on brake pedal. This master brake controller sends signals to each wheel brake controller based on driver input and dynamic weight distribution. The frictionless electromagnetic braking system of claim 1wherein the brake disc acts as a secondary rotor for the first and second linear alternators.
