The Kinetic Brake Booster 2001-01-3189

Main defect of traditional structure of the brake boosters is the necessity of an external energy source. The analysis of redistribution of power streams occurring during at braking of the automobile shows that it is possible to use the force component of the driving automobile kinetic energy for the drive of a booster (so-called kinetic booster). The power consumed by a booster is taken from power developed during brake action thereby it promotes vehicle slowing down.
In the paper for the booster work the schemas of power take-off from an engine, onboard electric system, transmission, single wheel are considered. Especially for brake-by-wire systems the project of pilot management is probed. It allows applying the serial x-by-wire components both on small automobiles andon vehicle with the great load-carrying capacity and trailers.
