Experimental Investigation of Vacuum Brake System Performance in Light Commercial Vehicles

This paper presents experimental investigation of braking performance of vacuum brake system for light commercial vehicles. The vacuum brake system uses a compressor for creating vacuum and requires less driver effort compared to the conventional brake system. In this work various components of vacuum brake system are designed and fabricated and then installed in Maruti Omni vehicle for performance testing. The stopping distance, braking force and braking efficiency are analysed for vacuum brake system.
