Project Summary Project Information

Project Background:

ITT created a solid-state Eddy Current vibration dampening system for space applications. They developed a prototype that exceeded their analytical model by a factor of 2 and they are unsure of the specific cause.

Problem Statement:

ITT would like a model of a solid-state Eddy Current damping system. They would like a prototype that closely follows the analytical model.

Objectives/Scope:

  1. Develop system model that accurately models behavior
  2. Develop prototype with space applications in mind
  3. Test prototype to compare with model

Deliverables:

  • Eddy current dampener prototype
  • Analytical system model
  • Test fixture
  • Documentation to assist future development

Expected Project Benefits:

  • Further understand magnetic damping
  • Understand the correlation between analytical model and real world application
