With that wealth of detailed information in your question, I'd say the answer is "some".

Welcome to the PF. :smile:

As you can tell, we would need a lot more information in order to give you a ballpark estimate. But even better would be if you read through some background information (encyclopedia-type) articles, and link to them and ask specific questions about what you don't understand. The Wikipedia article on "Eddy Current Brake" looks to be a good place to start. :smile:
