Here’s a no-brainer tip for you: space vectors are useful when designing electric motors. Duh. However, there’s one specific detail you might not know: they are also extremely handy when computing the back-EMF waveform, or induced no-load voltages. Specifically, they…
How to compute flux linkages of a coil, using the results of 2D finite element analysis. Nice to know information, with occasional professional uses.
Electric motors come with various number of poles. But why is that the case, and what are the benefits and drawbacks of an increased number?
Why two popular torque formulas, based on Lorentz force and magnetic shear stress, are in fact the SAME formula and thus yield identical results.
How does the peak torque capacity of an axial-flux motor compare to radial-flux. Read here to find out, kinda.
they, really? And are they as good as promised? Read to find out!
What are the most important dimensions for switched and synchronous reluctance motors? The same ones as for all motors, luckily – click for details!
Hypehypehypehypehypehypehypehypehype Alright, let’s be serious. Interest in machine learning is booming. (And I refuse to use the term artificial intelligence or AI – there’s nothing intelligent in being able to do a very tightly defined task quite well). Anyways, I’ve gotten some…
Which one is better – an SRM or a SynRM? You won’t find the answer here, but you’ll get some tools to make the decision yourself.
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.
