Series Motor or Universal Motor

Series Motor or Universal Motor: Series Motor or Universal Motor – A series motor can be run from either dc or ac (single-phase) supply provided that both stator and rotor cores are laminated to limit the iron-loss. Figure 10.43 is the cross-sectional view of a series motor connected to ac supply. As the armature current […]

Hybrid Stepper Motor

Hybrid Stepper Motor: Hybrid Stepper Motor -This is in fact a PM stepper motor with constructional features of toothed and stacked rotor adopted from the variable-reluctance motor. The stator has only one set of winding-excited poles which interact with the two rotor stacks. The permanent magnet is placed axially along the rotor in form of […]

Stepper Motor

Stepper Motor: The stepper motor is a special type of synchronous motor which is designed to rotate through a specific angle (called a step) for each electrical pulse received by its control unit. Typical step sizes are 7.5°, 15° or larger. The stepper motor is used in digitally controlled position control systems in open loop […]

Two phase Servomotor

Two phase Servomotor: Two phase Servomotor – For a low-power (a few hundred watts) control application, a 2-phase (balanced) servomotor is ideally suited as it can be driven by means of a relatively rugged (drift-free) ac amplifier. The motor torque can be easily controlled by varying the magnitude of the ac voltage applied to the […]

Circuit Model of Single phase Induction Motor

Circuit Model of Single phase Induction Motor: Circuit Model of Single phase Induction Motor – The winding unbalance and the fact that both the main and auxiliary windings are fed by the same supply result in unbalanced main and auxiliary fields. The phasor along the winding axes can be split into symmetrical components F̅f and […]
