Stepper Motor Classification

Stepper Motor Classification: The Stepper Motor Classification based on the construction and principle of operation. These are Variable reluctance motors Permanent magnet motors Hybrid stepping motors Claw pole motors with permanent magnets The stepper motors are used for linear motors also. These are also classified as ‘variable reluctance motors’ and ‘permanent magnet motors’. Variable Reluctance […]

Centrifugal Pump Load

Centrifugal Pump Load: Centrifugal Pump Load are used as boiler feed pumps and for pumping water in water pipe lines. The former must be adapted to the variable output of the steam generator. In the latter, varying water requirements of an area decide the delivery rate. The delivery rate of a pump is regulated by
