An experimental electromagnetic induction device for a magnetorheological damper

Bogdan Sapiński
The work presents an experimental electromagnetic induction device consisting of permanent magnets and a coil which produces electric energy for an attached magnetorheological (MR) damper. The study covers design considerations and calculations of magnetic fields, description of the engineered device, and results of experimental tests on the dynamic testing machine.
