Tailored towards design engineers and OEM’s “The Basics of Motor Selection” whitepaper is written to assist readers in the motor selection and customization process. Focusing on four electric motor types (AC Induction, PMDC, Universal and Brushless DC) Groschopp engineers meticulously outline the motor selection process including; drawbacks, advantages and characteristics of each motor type.
If you are involved in motor design or selection at some level—whether you have some technical and design challenges with current projects and are looking for some new ideas, planning for future designs or you are responsible for purchasing motors, Groschopp outlines 4 basic steps to optimize application design and performance.
4 Basic Criteria to Optimize Motor Design & Performance
- Motor Basics: what do you need to know to get started in selecting the optimal motor for your application?
- Application Considerations: how to identify and define the major characteristics, objectives and priorities of your application? What roles do environment, duty cycle, and electrical / mechanical load play in the successful application of motors?
- Motor Types: a review and comparison of motor types relative to application considerations giving designers a good starting point in making a motor selection.
- Customization: how does customization change motor performance? An overview about how to maximize motor design to meet OEM performance and cost objectives.
