Permanent magnet motor drive train

  1. May 10, 2016 #1
    Hello there,
    can anyone tell me what is a permanent magnet motor drive train and what is the working principle of permanent magnet motor drive train ? i have searched google but i couldn't find anything useful

    Do you mean the electrical drive system which powers the motor or the mechanical drive system which transmits power between motor and load ?

    Put these key words into Google :

    dc motor control systems

    dc motor power supply circuits

    dc motor variable speed controllers

    That should give you the basics .

    Please come back if you have specific questions

    The searches I suggested will all yield information relevant to permanent magnet motor control systems .

    There is a huge amount of information relating to all kinds of motor control systems readily available - just do a proper search using some very obvious keywords

    Try ' control systems for permanent magnet dc motors ' for instance .

    "Permanent magnet motors" can be tiny (used as vibrators in pagers) to real monsters. Speeds from 0 to >50,000 rpm. What sort of motors are you interested in?

    What's the application? Do you just need to control the speed or position as well? Regenerative braking?

    Is it an AC or DC motor you are working on?

    I am working on DC

    i need the whole setup including the speed control position control as well as the torque control and braking
