Load Equalisation in Electrical Drives

Load Equalisation in Electrical Drives: Load Equalisation in Electrical Drives – In some drive applications, load torque fluctuates widely within short intervals of time. For example, in pressing machines a large torque of short duration is required during pressing operation, otherwise the torque is nearly zero. Other examples are electric hammer, steel rolling mills and …

Steady State Stability of Drive

Steady State Stability of Drive: Equilibrium speed of a motor-load system is obtained when motor torque equals the load torque. Drive will operate in steady-state at this speed, provided it is the speed of stable equilibrium. Concept of Steady State Stability of Drive has been developed to readily evaluate the stability of an equilibrium point …

Classification of Load Torques

Classification of Load Torques: As we know already, the nature of Classification of Load Torques depends on particular application. A low speed hoist is an example of a load where the torque is constant and independent of the speed (Fig. 2.3). At low speeds, windage torque is negligible. Therefore, net torque is mainly due to …

Components of Load Torques

Components of Load Torques: Components of Load Torques Tl can be further divided into following components: (i) Friction torque TF : Friction will be present at the motor shaft and also in various parts of the load. TF is equivalent value of various friction torques referred to the motor shaft. (ii) Windage torque, Tw : When a motor …

Motor Design Parameters

Motor Design Parameters: Different parts of a load may be coupled through different mechanisms, such as gears, V-belts and crankshaft. These parts may have different speeds and different types of Motions such as rotational and translational. This section presents methods of Motor Design Parameters finding the equivalent moment of inertia (J) of motor-load system and equivalent …
