    Presentation Transcript
    1. ElectricMotors

    2. Applications • Fans • Blowers • Machine tools (drill) • Appliances (blender, food processor) • Wristwatches • Disk drives • Pumps • Etc.

    3. How it works • Simply put, an electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy (work) • They operate through interacting magnetic fields and current-carrying conductors to produce a force • (This might sound familiar)

    4. Parts of a Permanent-magnet motor • Battery • Magnet • Brush • Armature

    5. Brushed DC motor • Oscillating current in wound rotor • Split-ring commutator • Wound or permanent magnet stator • Limitations • friction as brushes press against communtator • sparks can cause shorting through adjacent sections (limits max speed, as melting of the commutator may occur)

    6. LHR for the motor principle • If the thumb points in the direction of the current flow (real current), fingers are the B-field, palm is the force • Iis the current in the conductors, [A] • l is the length of the conductor in the field [m] • Bis the magnetic field, [T]

    7. Time to motor • Motors are easy to make, so let’s try! • Check out the following simple designs and try to identify the parts • Make sure the force on your coil agrees with LHR
