Abstract:
The eBrake® is a novel self-reinforcing electromechanical wedge brake[1]. Self reinforcement reduces the actuation forces, resulting in a more efficient and smaller brake, but demands more precise control than a conventional braking system. As a result, mathematical modelling and control law development plays a significant role in the development process.This paper describes the mathematical model of the brake and its validation against the prototype hardware. It is shown that there is a good correspondence between theory and practice, demonstrating both the validity of the model and its potential as a tool in future developments. Both the model and test results illustrate that the potential advantages of this design are realisable in practice.
