The uSky innovative transport and infrastructure complexes surpass other existing and promising developments in many respects, but today's publication by Unitsky String Technologies, Inc. is of the greatest importance for their speed characteristics and service life.
Braking systems familiar to us require constant maintenance, repair, and replacement of consumables due to the presence of rubbing surfaces, therefore the tasks set for the developers to create a rolling stock capable of moving at a speed of 500 km/h in the logic "to last 100 years" requires a qualitatively different approach to their improvement. In this regard, a solution using an eddy-current moderator is applied in string transport. In this design, there is no mechanical contact, which makes it possible to solve the problem of wear not only of the brake system, but also of the machine itself. Its main advantage is energy independence since permanent magnets are used in the design and there is no need to supply electricity. This means that the system is always activated, maintaining efficiency at all speeds of vehicles and with any condition of the rail surface.
We quote the Chief of Power Engineering Office in Unitsky String Technologies, Inc. Pavel Valkovich, who spoke about the innovation of this element and its advantages when used on string transport:
“What is an eddy-current retardation? First of all, this is a method to decelerate vehicles whereby braking force emerges due to interaction of magnetic fields. How does it work? Resistance that stops a moving object represents an electromagnetic force between a magnet and the nearest current-carrying object (tire) which are moving relative to each other. Currents in the conductor (tire) are electromagnetically induced to form an inherent magnetic field… We can utilize it, for example, as an emergency retarder on stub tracks or as a working vehicle retarder. Simply speaking, this is a secondary braking system which helps to decelerate vehicles, thus reducing abrasion of regular brakes”.
We invite you to familiarize yourself with the development process and advantages of an eddy current moderator in the publication “Unitsky String Technologies Inc. introduces energy-independent types of transport retardation” on the official website of the company.
