How Motors Work: Learning What Your Options Are in Electric Motors

Motors are used in all sorts of applications and purposes in many aspects of life. They are so valuable that some processes and work needed in a specific industry cannot be achieved without them.

In this guide, we will be handing you out some of the basics of electric motors, including the common types and how you should pick the right one for your needs. In the most generic sense, you should be focusing on answering two questions: which motor type should you choose based on a specific application and which specs matter in the process of choosing that type?

But before we delve into your options, let’s first talk about how motors work. In the most basic sense, electric motors function by converting electrical energy into mechanical energy, the purpose of which is to create some kind of motion. Though the interaction found within the motor between the magnetic field and winding alternating or direct current, force is successfully generated. The moment the strength of the current increases, the strength of the magnetic field also increases.

In today’s modern world, electric motors have a wide range of applications. For instance, they are used in industries for blowers, power tools, pumps, and fans. For small applications and hobbyists, you’d see them in projects that require movement or motion, including that of robotics and modules with wheels.

The Types

When it comes to DC motors, the two common varieties are brushed and brushless. Aside from the two, there also are vibrating, servo, and stepper motors. Brushed DC motors are the ones we know about for certain because they’re found in many things we use every day. The list of things include vehicles, toys, and appliances. This type of electric motor have contact brushes inside them, which in turn is connected to a thing called “commutator” in order to alter current direction. DC motors aren’t like other electric motors used in large industries because they are affordable to produce and are simple to control.

On the other hand, brushless motors come with permanent magnets in the rotor assembly. They are the motors found in aircraft as well as ground vehicle applications and are easier to maintain than brushed versions.

Things to Consider When Purchasing a Motor

The four single most important attributes in choosing a motor are current, voltage, torque, and velocity. By definition, current is that thing that powers the motor. You cannot choose too much current because it’ll damage the motor. Voltage meanwhile is for keeping net current flowing in a specific direction and for overcoming back current. In literal sense, a higher voltage in the motor corresponds to higher torque. Velocity can also be referred to as speed and the way it works is that motors run efficiently at higher speeds.

So there you have it – the most basic things you should be considering when selecting a motor for a specific project or application. Now it’s your job to do more studying on the other highly specific factors to weigh upon.

How Do DC and AC Motors Differ?

You could actually find two primary types of electric motors. Such motors are the Direct Current (DC) and the Alternating Current (AC). AC and DC refers on how the electrical current is being transferred through and from the motor. Both types of these motors have various uses and functions. The DC motors are available in two general types. These are the brushless types and the ones that comes with a brush. An AC motor also come in two different types. They can actually be a two or three phase. The difference on DC and AC motors are sometimes subtle, however the differences would be what really makes one type better for a certain use.

The DC or Direct Current electric motors actually works in cases to where speed will require controlling. The DC type of motors have a stable and a continuous current. These were the first and earliest motors to which were used. However, they have been found to be not that good in producing power for long lengths. The electric companies actually found that using DC motors when it comes to generating electric did not work due to power was lost as the electricity was transmitted. A brush DC motor uses rings that conducts current and form the magnetic drives that powers the rotor. A brushless DC motor uses a switch for it to be able to generate a magnetic drive which is going to power the rotor. The DC motors actually are found mostly in appliances inside homes.

The alternating current or AC electric motors are used differently to which is based on the type of AC motor. The single phase AC motors are known to be general purpose motors. They can actually work well for different situations. The AC motor is great for systems that are hard to start because they will need a lot of power. The three phase or called otherwise as polyphase AC motors are mostly found in industrial establishments. Motors like these comes with high starting power build to which could transmit lower levels for overall power.
A Beginners Guide To Machines

The DC and AC electric motors these days can be found almost anywhere. Also, motors are considered to be something essential in our everyday life. DC motors also were introduced and have caused great revolution in the way things are done. Once AC motors had been introduced in the market with how motors are looked at, this changed greatly because of the amazing starting power potential that it comes with. You should bear in mind that the DC and AC motors are different in a lot of ways, but both of them are used in order to power the world.The Ultimate Guide to Motors

Rise Out Of Normal Thinking And Become Extraordinary

Ordinary people, however rich or poor they are, are competitive. Genuinely extraordinary people are creative, very creative, extremely creative. With that, I begin this article. Creation of anything great depends on an extraordinary effort, but never on a competitive fantasy of “getting there first” or “being the winner at the top of the heap.” I mean, think about this fact for a moment. Some of the most creative people started out “behind” and ended up genuinely ahead because of this fact.

So, life is as ordinary or extraordinary as we make it. Sort of like how Napoleon Hill mentioned about “going the extra mile” in efforts, business and life. I mean, if you just do what you are paid to do, you will usually not get any extra or better in any way.

So, that brings me to a point: The extra mile depends on voluntary creativity, not doing just what needs to be done to get paid. To put it another way, everybody is due, but when some go beyond their “due”, that is when riches and extraordinary things happen. Creating value beyond what you are paid that does create the real riches is where it is at, all else below that is just normal or standard.

So, another concept here: The “go-giver” is always better than the “go-getter.” Hard work to earn your pay is one thing, but creating service and greatness is as beyond that as God-consciousness is beyond normal consciousness. I know, that is quite a comparison, but I wanted to garner your attention and understanding as we wind up this article. Productiveness is powerful, but being infinitely valuable beyond productivity makes you invincible. For, a genuine waste of time is just to “get paid” without powerful thought of service, a genuine good use of time is service with the best purposes.

I read the Elbert Hubbard essay, “A Message To Garcia” a lot when I need this understanding myself also or think of the essay when I need the pure motivation to act with that pure alacrity of motive that does work to make one extraordinary. So, I end by repeating the words with a gender unspecific rendering of the beginning of the essay: “If you are going to work for a person, by God work for them.” Those words in the perfect context are wise words, and the purest words there are in the reality of the extraordinary, they are genuine game changers and motivators that work to motivate, and spur achievement themselves. Otherwise, the realm of the normal is inevitable.

Just Flying High

Just Flying High
I am an Eagle
I live in high country
In lofty cathedrals
that reach for the sky
And all those who see me and
all who believe in me
share the freedom I feel
when I fly.

To me the Eagle is symbolic of Flying High. On a wall near my old office, I had hung a large picture of an Eagle in full flight, wings outstretched, looking all-conquering. And under the picture there is a caption.
It reads:

Accept the Challenges.
So that you might feel the exhilaration of victory
– of flying high.
We can all fly high, in our own way, if we choose to.
Each of us is a miracle of creation.
a reservoir of power
a success machine in the making
a sleeping giant ready to awaken to our potential
It is our attitude to life that determines our altitude.
As l stand here giving this speech, I am flying high. Just like the Eagle.

There have been times in my life when I was “flying high” in a physical sense. As a fifteen year old, I stood behind the pilot of a Lincoln Bomber on my first flight in an aircraft. I had always wanted to fly. As we took off from Amberley Base, I watched the wing flap up and down but I wasn’t scared, I was just plain exhilarated. I felt like the Eagle in the song and when, a few years later I spent 30 minutes in another much smaller plane as it did aerobatics, I had that same feeling again – a feeling of excitement and of immense confidence. That’s the exhilaration of flying high. But as I
have gone through life, my greatest thrills have been very personal achievements. Let me tell you about some of them.

One of my greatest thrills has been to coach Queensland Schoolboys in several National Australian Football championships. In 1968, we played Victoria at Victoria Park, Home of Collingwood. We led Victoria for most of the game only to lose it through inexperience – a great achievement considering Victoria had beaten Queensland by 20 goals two years before. We were all flying high that day.

Some years ago, I was issued with a different challenge. That was to run 7km non-stop – not such a great feat but for me at 50 years of age, it was. This “training run” began at the bottom of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs. We began by running up the steps to the top of the Cliffs then over the Storey Bridge, through the city across the Victoria Bridge and via Southbank back to the starting point. Thirty-five minutes later I was there and feeling a real sense of achievement. I felt so alive, I was flying high.

Golf has, in recent years, become one of my passions. One afternoon I was playing well. I drove off the 18th tee only to see my ball hook way left across the next fairway and beyond. Between my ball and the 18th green was a huge Moreton Bay Fig tree – 50 feet high, 50 feet across, 50 feet deep. I had 2 choices, play safe and score at best a bogie or go over the tree. I chose to go over the tree. I grabbed a wedge, set myself, head down and hit through the ball and as I looked up I saw my ball flying high, way over the tree on -its way to the green. I found my ball one metre from the hole. I put it in for a birdie. I faced that challenge and felt the exhilaration of “flying high.”

Robert Kennedy expressed this same feeling in these words:
“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly!”
“Faith and belief are the wings that will help us soar to our destination. It is better to shoot for the moon ’cause if you miss, you’ll still be among the stars.”

This brings me back to the Eagle. There is a wonderful animated Cartoon about an Eaglet learning to fly. The nest is way up at the top of a pinnacle, hundreds of metres from the ground. The mother eagle encourages the eaglet to have a go at flying. She pushes the eaglet out. It falls, not knowing what to do. Slowly it begins to flap but it continues to fall. The mother flies down wings spread and saves the eaglet who lands on her outstretched wings and takes the eaglet back again. The process is repeated over again, a number of times. The eaglet begins to flap earlier and the mother rescues him later and later. Suddenly the eaglet realises it can fly and it begins to do so and you see it face light up as it soars away realising that all it had to do was to continue to try and success would come.

And that’s the message of the Eagle and my message to you.

Flying high is a state of mind.
It is a matter of choice.
Don’t stay oblivious to the immense capability within yourself.
Whatever you want can be yours, if you believe it strongly enough.
So keep on trying and you’ll find you’ve won,
Just grab your dream and then believe it,
Go out and work and you’ll achieve it;
If you think you can, you can!
Sail over the canyons and up to the stars
and reach for the heavens and
hope for the future
and all that you can be.
Not what we are.

John Denver’s song ends, daring us to be what we can be:-
A success machine;
A miracle of creation.

So I challenge you to accept the challenges of life and be like the eagle and feel the exhilaration of “flying high.”

He loved to write and perform motivational speeches as he needed in everyday life to inspire students in his Maths classes and students in his sporting teams to work hard to achieve the best possible results. Rostrum like other public speaking organisations (e. g. Toastmasters), are great training grounds for those who need to speak well in public. Rostrum originated in England while Toastmasters had its beginnings in the USA.
