ME 229 - Design of Basic Electro-mechanical Devices

Description:

Fundamental principles of magnetics, electro-magnetics, and magnetic materials as applied to design and operation of electro-mechanical devices. Applied magnetic theory: magnetic motive force, permeance, flux, intensity, leakage. Properties of magnets and magnetic materials. Principles of operation of basic electro-mechanical devices and their drivers. Design of actuators and motors to meet force, torque, back EMF, and capacity requirements. Type and dimensional synthesis and material specification for custom applications of linear and rotary actuators, stepper motors, synchronous motors, and DC brushless motors. Specification of poles, phases, winding patterns, and impedance. 3 units.
