Brushless DC Motor Physics Report.
Isaac Mills.

Motor: A machine powered by electrical current or the explosion of gases inside chambers that will provide movement for a vehicle.

When an electric current, magnetic field or external force acts on a coil found inside of the motor, it will provide force to it, thus causing the coil to move, the coil rotates on a half turn basis otherwise the motor is forced to stop and will not move.

The Motor Effect
Motor effect refers to a current carrying wire in place of a magnetic field, the wire experiences a force, instead of the magnetic field producing it. You can measure the force by using the formula: F=lBISinθ
F= Force. I= Current flowing through wire. B= Strength of Magnetic Field. l(L) = Length

Brushes, coincidentally are used in brushed dc motors, as opposed to brushless dc motors, in which they are not used. there are two main types of motors, Brushed DC Motors, and Brushless DC motors. Brushes are the main reason why Brushed DC motors are in constant need of repairs as the brushes create a large amount of excess friction, thus meaning the brushes, commutators and armatures will be more susceptible to damage

Why use a Brushless DC Motor?
A Brushless Dc Motor is far superior than its Brushed counterpart as, which you can guess by its name, It is Brushless. This is beneficial because as there is the less amount of parts, meaning that it is less prone to malfunction, meaning that it can operate for a longer amount of time without being maintained. This means it is more reliable, meaning that it is prefered when installing it in a high use machine.

Left hand Rule

The Left hand rule applies to the current in a conductor that generates a magnetic field. The left hand rule is used for determining the forces in a motor. The thumb is used to determine the force of the current. The index finger is used to determine Magnetic or electrical current as well as other flux in the system. And lastly, the middle finger is used to find out the direction of the force.

To Conclude, throughout this report i have demonstrated the purposes of Motors, as well as describing the differences between the Brushed DC Motor, and the Brushless DC Motor. I have also gone over the advantages of using the Brushless Motor over the Brushed Motor. The reason why DC Motors are used in computers is simple - They are quieter, and more

    When a DC voltage is supplied to the coil it induces a current flow through the coil. The electric current and the magnetic field will therefore interact resulting to a force, which pushes the coil to move in its direction. Figure 2: Torque production in a DC motor (Hambley et al., 2008) In a real DC motor, there are many such coils wounded on the rotor, and they will all be pushed in the direction of the force causing their rotation. The current flowing in the coil is directly proportional to the magnetic field produced and sequentially the rate of the motion. In addition, torque is produced concurrently with the movement of the conductors in the magnetic field (Hambley et al., 2008).…

    When a magnet is in motion near a non-magnetic conductor such as copper and aluminium eddy currents are induced in the conductor, causing a dissipative force called magnetic braking force, or a change in magnetic flux (figure 2). This force is dependent on: The size and shape of the conductor and magnet The strength of the magnet (μ) The conductors conductivity (σ_c) The distance between the conductive surface and the magnet (d) The velocity of the magnet (v) According to Faraday’s law, discovered in 1831 by Michael Faraday, this alteration in flux produces electromotive force (EMF) and eddy currents inside the metal. (Meerman, 2014) This force is the retarding force that is associated with magnetic braking. According to Newton’s third…

    A STATCOM’s advantages include flexible voltage control for power quality improvement, fast response, and applicability for use with high fluctuating loads. One of the most important advantages of using STATCOM over a thyristor based SVC is that it’s compensating current is not dependent on the voltage level at the connection point which means that the compensating current is not lowered as the voltage drops. The output of the wind power plants and the total load varies throughout the day. Also, reactive power imbalances, which can seriously affect the power system, can be minimized by reactive power compensation devices such as the STATCOM. It can contribute to the low voltage ride through requirement since it can operate at full capacity even at lower voltages.…

    Introduction: In the following experiment, I am going to test whether the copper wire will have less Resistivity (ρ) than the iron wire, and/or the two copper wires connected together. Resistivity is defined as how strongly a particular material resists current, and is measured in Ohm-meters (Ω-m). Electrical resistance (R) is the opposite of the flow of electrons, or the passage of an electrical current. Electrical conductivity (σ) is the opposite of resistivity and is measured in Siemens (S). Electrical conductivity is defined as; the degree to which a specified material conducts electricity, calculated as the ratio of the current density in the material to the electric field which causes the flow of current.…

    Motor Effect: To summarise the motor effect it is the idea that the force caused by current flowing through a wire and causing a magnetic field around it. When this created magnetic field interacts with a magnetic field from a fixed magnet, it causes a force which moves the wire in relation to the right hand…

    Temporary magnets hold the properties of a magnet while in a magnetic field, but lost these properties once the field goes away. An example of this would be a paper clip that is charged and can act as a magnet for a limited time. Electromagnets are wires wrapped around a metal center (usually iron). The wires have a current flowing through them. An example of this would be a nail with wires wrapped around it connected to a battery.…

    A dc–dc converter and an inverter are cascaded together to form a two stage topology is widely used scheme for dc-ac power conversion. First stage of power conversion involves the dc–dc converter which is used for boosting and regulating the dc-bus voltage, and in the later stage, the inverter is used for converting the dc voltage into ac voltage. Such above mentioned two-stage schemes are time tested and work well, but suffers from lower efficiency, higher device count, larger size, higher cost and lower…

    At low loads the reason for the lack of efficiency is down to the extent of the slipping as the tensions are less, however the reason for the decreasing efficiency at high torques is down to losses in the engine itself. With engines, the term ‘stall torque’ refers to when the torque is great enough that the output rotational speed becomes zero, as the mechanical resistance increases to the extent that more current cannot be consumed from the supply. This will be the greatest possible torque as there will be no slip, but the rotational power will be zero as the body is not moving. In this scenario, the motor effectively simply functions as a large resistor, and so is very prone to overheating as almost all the power is dissipated as heat inside the motor. Conversely, the minimum torque occurs when there’s no load to pull, and this is usually called the ‘free rpm’.…

    F. Power Calculation for motors selection Selection of motors needs to make a dynamic analysis to the manipulator arm to calculate the required torques then multiply it by the angular velocities to get the power, then select the motor that can give the same or little bit higher power than the required (by multiplying by factor of safety) ; if the motor have a small torque and big angular velocity gearbox is used to increase torque and decrease angular velocity (the power will not changed due to conservation of power as long as there is no friction). 〖Power〗_i=T_i*w_i V. Design Specifications The manipulator arm design was based on Kitty Hawk quadrotor that can carry up to 4.3 kg payload and has a (Width: 42” Length: 40” Height: 10”).

    Field strength or intensity is the force which maintains the magnetic flux and produces a particular value of the flux density B at that point in a magnetic field. Therefore the flux density is the cause while the flux density (B) is the effect. The flux density can be assumed proportionally to the field intensity in a magnetic field which comes in three parts. First part is: Where U stands for the permeability of force (the measure of the degree to which the magnetic line of force can penetrate the material). The value of magnetic space constant is B is the magnetic flux density while H is magnetic intensity.…
