Stepper Motor – How It Works

Stepper Motor – How It Works

Stepper Motor is a brushless motor that rotates in steps. This is very useful because it can be precisely position without any feedback sensor which represents an open loop controller. The stepper motor consists of a rotor there is generally a permanent magnet and it is surrounded by the windings of the stator As we …

DC Motor vs Universal Motor – Difference between DC Motor and Universal Motor

DC Motor vs Universal Motor – Difference between DC Motor and Universal Motor

Both DC Motor and Universal Motor work the same function of converting electrical energy into mechanical energy. The main difference between DC Motor and Universal Motor works only with DC supply whereas universal motor works with both AC and DC. In this video we will go to learn difference between DC Motor and Universal Motor. …

MIT Robotic Cheetah

The general goal of our lab is to understand the locomotion aspect of animals. Recently we are focusing on quadrupeds, or four-legged animals and we try to understand how they efficiently run in the field and nature so that we can take that inspiration and then use it in our engineering world. So for example …

Stepper Motor – Simple, DIY

Here’s something I thought you might find amusing This is a stepper motor circuit Stepping motors are used in things like printers to position the paper exactly, to move it forward and backwards. They are also used in laser printers, fax machines… This came out of a old printer It’s a crude one, I think …

Elon Musk explains Electric Motor Cooling

Elon Musk explains Electric Motor Cooling

The bigger challenge is actually cooling it effectively and then particularly cooling the rotor, cause you’ve got this rotor going at like 18 000 rpm, so the Model S we coaxially cool the rotor in order to have high steady state. So, also for electric motor it’s easier to get peak power for a short …
