Geometric Study of Space Motor and Power Assist Leg Motor


Article Preview

Generally, commercial motors are produced as the lineup of series of outer diameter. The output power is changed with their length. However, the production number of space motor or power assist leg motor is small, while the power ratio versus motor weight is very important factor. The geometric study is proposed in this paper; especially, such problems of outer rotor versus inner rotor motor, outer diameter versus length. The motor characteristics are assumed with the FEM simulation. These constants depend on the motor pole number and driving amplifiers. Hence the exact geometrical dimensions should be determined with the careful simulation. Before simulation rough geometrical size can be determined, then the exact simulation will be carried out to determine the motor dimension and estimate the produced motor characteristics. The results are planned to compare with some of the experimental results.
