Eddy Current Dynamometer Design
Its a Testing setup (Eddy Current Dynamometer) for Switched Reluctance motor.
Drum is a hollow cylinder. Drum and Pole will rotate along same axis. Drum is connected to Motor to be tested(SRM). Pole has excitations, when it excited it attract with drum. Motor rotates drum. Hence Pole also rotates with same speed.
Pole rotation is blocked and its connected to load cell for torque measurement. When Motor Rotates and pole rotates same speed with drum( same speed as motor), we can measure torque at particular speed. Then we reduce the excitation them the drum will slip from pole magnet
So particular torque we should give particular magnetic force of attraction to drum.
1. How this magnetic attraction force can calculated??
2. Is this can be simulated in ansys maxwell( with drum rotation transient)
