Understanding Motors for Drones and Servos

2019-05-16 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm EDT

On Thursday, May 16, 2019, the IEEE Consultants’ Network of Northern NJ (technologyontap.org) will host a presentation on Motors for drones and servos.

About the Topic

How Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motors are constructed, their performance, and how to select them will be discussed. Both inside rotor and out runner motors, as used in drones, will be discussed. Brushless DC motors are used in high performance servo systems and in copter drones. They are capable of high power output in a given size, making them the motor of choice for weight or size sensitive applications. When properly applied they are enormously robust. Without resorting to heavy math, the basics of their design will be presented, so that attendees can have a more complete understanding of how they work and what design features to look for. Users of BLDC motors will be in a better position to ensure they get a motor that will meet their requirements.
