DOUBLE ENDED BRAKE TEST RIG WITH INERTIA SIMULATION

Brake test rigs are normally designed with variable flywheel sets. This paper describes a method to simulate variable moments of inertia at a fixed flywheel electrically by means of electrical drive and both power and control electronics. Owing to its short constructional length, the procedure is particularly suitable for double ended brake test rigs. A process utilizing the cooling gaps has been developed and tested: Two identical or different test pieces may be tested in time-sharing mode.
