Advantages of eddy current dynamometer

Eddy current dynamometer used to measure the torque and power of the engine. It works on the principle of generating eddy current which opposes the change in magnetic flux. Let us have a deep insight into the advantages provide by eddy current dynamometer. 

Advantages of eddy current dynamometer : 

  • Relatively higher torque under low-speed conditions.
  • No size limit it can be large or small.
  • It can be capable of measuring high power per unit weight of the dynamometer.
  • It does not have intricate rotating parts except shaft bearing.
  • The development of eddy current is smooth and therefore the torque under almost all conditions is smooth and continuous as well.
  • Easy to control and operate.
