Information

This information is part of the Modelica Standard Library maintained by the Modelica Association.

An eddy current brake reduces the speed of a moving mass. Kinetic energy is converted to thermal energy which leads to a temperature increase of the thermal capacitance of the brake, which can be assumed as adiabatic during the rather short time span of the braking.
