Research on Flywheel Sets on Electromagnetic Eddy Current Retarder Test-Bed
A test-bed used to test electromagnetic eddy current retarder’s performance was designed. It can evaluate the connection of automobiles speed, excitation current, rotor temperature and brake torsion. Besides, a series of flywheels were designed which can randomly combine and simulate the running state of the automobiles. The design of flywheel is referred in many machines, not for it can solve the problem of stability, but for providing moment of inertia.
