Latest Research Progress of Amorphous Motors


Article Preview

The development of amorphous motors has been paid more and more attention. Different types of amorphous motors are designed, calculated, manufactured and tested. All of the motors achieve high efficiency and high torque density, especially in the high speed applications. However, few amorphous motors have been applied to practical applications. This paper reviews the newly development of amorphous motors. Several deficiencies limited the development of amorphous motors are discussed, and some effective improved methods are proposed.
