My guest post at Revonte.com covers the optimization of an e-bike powertrain: the benefits of a CVT transmission, along with other basic principles.
Ever wondered what switched and synchronous reluctance machines are? Well, this post here covers the basics – how they work and where they differ.
What are BLDC motors? And how do they differ from AC motors? Why do people keep using such contradictory terms and confusing us?
Video of induced eddy currents in a lamination steel sheet – plus how they can be computed. There’s a SMEKlib example too for you to try!
Maglev – magnetic levitation – systems can be quite different from electric motors. So how to model them without time-consuming 3D simulations?
The Poyinting vector is quite rarely used in electric motor design. However, this underutilized tool can be extremely useful in the right hands.
Matlab and Python are both popular languages, but which one is better? You won’t find an explicit answer here, but a few factors to consider.
Circulating and eddy currents combined with PWM supply, illustrated with a nice video. What more could you wish for, really?
An active magnetic bearing system can be directly integrated into an electric motor, resulting in a self-levitating motor. Here’s how it works.
Ever wondered how 3D magnetics works, with finite element analysis? Now you can learn, with a simple SMEKlib example. The maths is anything but, sorry.
