Magnetic Brake — LiveLink™ for Simulink® Simulation

Application ID: 87351

A magnetic brake consists of a permanent magnet, which induces currents in a rotating copper disk. The resulting eddy currents interact with the magnetic flux to produce Lorentz forces and subsequently a braking torque. The disk angular velocity is computed using Simulink®.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
