The paper presents a set of normalized force-speed curves of a salient pole eddy current brake with Prohlich B-H characteristic for the loss drum, taking the air-gap flux distortion into account. With reasonable assumptions, the calculation of eddy current distribution in the loss drum can be simplified to the solution of a 1-dimensional nonlinear diffusion… (More)
