In the embodiment shown, a 4 wheel brake system is installed.

Retrieved from ” https: To make electromagnetic brakes work, a magnetic flux when passed in a direction perpendicular to the rotating direction of the wheel, we see eddy current flowing in a direction opposite to the rotation of the wheel. The method of claim 19further comprising controlling, electromagntic the first wheel controller, circulation of a self-excitation current in the double-side induction generator.

The kinetic energy of the vehicle’s motion electroagnetic dissipated in Joule heating by the eddy currents passing through the disk’s resistance, so like conventional friction disk brakes, the disk becomes hot. The frictionless electromagnetic braking system of claim 8wherein a first inverter controls the first linear alternator, and wherein a second inverter controls the second linear alternator.

The main purpose behind the proposed use of these brakes in vehicles is that it is frictionless. Each air gap shown in FIG. Linear alternators include primary stator and secondary brake disc rotor. In another embodiment of the invention, the alternator output power can be more than zero, which will be used to charge a battery or burn it to a braking resistor.

By Lenz’s law, the circulating currents will create their own magnetic field which opposes the field of the stationary magnet. The frictionless electromagnetic braking system of claim 1wherein the first and second linear alternators comprise linear induction alternators.

Note that this brake arrangement may be installed at the same place as conventional brake calipers with no change in powertrain architecture. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


The alternator is engaged by means of driver or operator input. However, because of alternator limitation as well as the amount of charge that battery can accept, these systems can produce small braking force which is useful for only in soft braking.

Also, since they do not actually absorb energy, provisions to transfer their radiated heat out of the test cell area must typically be provided. In another embodiment, the need for AUX may be eliminated by one or more capacitors coupled to linear alternator windings or power electronics converter s.

Typical brake systems have a master cylinder that distributes hydraulic fluid upon actuation of a vehicle brake pedal through hydraulic fluid transmission lines.

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. The power electronics interface controls the slip frequency of the alternator based on required braking systemm.

The frictionless electromagnetic braking system of claim 8further comprising one or more wheel controllers and a master brake controller, wherein the one or more wheel controllers control the one or more inverters, wherein the master brake controller controls the wheel controllers, and wherein the master brake controller receives the external input.

A frictionless electromagnetic braking system for a wheel of a vehicle or a moving device comprising: In this approach, the car’s kinetic energy is used to enhance the braking. See the diagram at right. Click for automatic bibliography generation. The apparatus of claim 14further comprising: The braking force decreases as the velocity decreases. electromagneti

The current flows in the stator of linear induction alternator and induces a large current on the rotor disc. Collectively, these two alternators form a double-side linear induction alternator. The power electronics converter works as a variable voltage, variable frequency inverter which is used for excitation of the linear induction generator and also controlling the magnitude and frequency of currents in the linear induction generator.

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

An advantage of the linear brake is that since each section of rail passes only once ststem the magnetic field of the brake, in contrast to the disk brake in which each section of the disk passes repeatedly through the brake, the rail doesn’t get as hot as a frctionless, so the linear brake can dissipate more energy and have a higher power rating than disk brakes.

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.

The frictionless electromagnetic braking system of claim 8wherein one inverter controls the first and second linear alternators. In eddy current brakes, DC excitation poles are arranged frictionles the not-moving parts of brakes. A disadvantage is that since the braking force is proportional to relative velocity of the brake, the brake has no holding force when the moving object is stationary, as is provided by static friction in a friction brake, so in vehicles it electromafnetic be supplemented by a friction brake.

One embodiment of the present system includes a linear alternator such as a linear induction generator which is electromagneitc by a power electronics converter interface to capture the car’s kinetic energy and generate braking force on the wheel. The system includes a compact electromagnetic device which is installed on each wheel.

Another way to understand the fructionless is to see that the free charge carriers electrons in the metal sheet are moving to the right, so the magnetic field exerts a sideways force on them due to the Lorentz force. The brake does not work by the simple attraction of a ferromagnetic metal to the magnet. As a consequence, the moving conductive surface will experience a drag force from the magnet that opposes its motion. Besides, the vehicle power train architecture has to be changed slectromagnetic bulky batteries are needed.

Linear alternators capture the car’s kinetic energy upon the driver’s, or the operator’s, input. The apparatus of claim 14, further comprising: The coils form multiple phases and multiple poles.
