This paper deals with the design, simulation and experimental verification of a new bilayer multipole electromagnetic brake. The design utilizes the superposition principle of magnetic flux across the inner and outer layers of axially-oriented electromagnetic poles to provide gradual braking about the single axis of rotation. The braking principle exploits the Coulomb friction between the two rigid contact surfaces. Compared with conventional, multi-pole, multi-layer type radial brakes in haptic applications, the proposed design provides high fidelity of free motion through an absolutely disconnected rotor. The design also provides a wide operating range by delaying the saturation limit of a magnetic circuit for a wide range of input power. In this paper, the analytical model of the brake is derived and compared with the FEM-based simulation results. The optimal design obtained from multi-objective optimization was experimentally verified for its capability in haptic applications. View Full-Text
