This thesis contains a study of high speed eddy-current couplings and dynamometers.After a short introductory chapter, which includes a description of-the various types of coupling and an appraisal of existing coupling literature, the work is divided into two parts: i) The derivation and verification of a general temperature theory for assessing the effects of loss member temperature on the performance and design of eddy-current coupling. 11) Comprehensive testing of a new water cooled high speed eddy current dynamometer and investigation whether existing coupling theory was valid at high frequencies. There are no publications dealing specifically with either of the so topics. This thesis therefore fills two gaps in eddy-current coupling literature
