Analytical results for rotating and linear magnetic brakes
Main Article Content
A theory of magnetic damper (eddy-current brake) which can be applied to axial-flux rotating and linear systems moving under the influence of an arbitrary arrangement of magnetic poles is derived from basic electromagnetic principles. Analytical expressions for the braking forces and torques are obtained in the low-velocity limit
of the moving nonmagnetic conductor.
