7. Modeling of Electromechanical Systems
Electromechanical systems consist of an electrical subsystem and a mechanical subsystem with mass and possibly elasticity and damping. In some devices, such as motors and speakers, the mass is driven by a force generated by the electrical subsystem. In other devices, such as microphones, the motion of the mass generates a voltage or current in the electrical subsystem. DC MOTORS There are many types of electric motors, but the two main categories are direct current (dc) motors and alternating current (ac) motors. Within the dc motor category there are the armature-controlled motor and the field-controlled motor.

We aim to control the speed or motion of dc motors.
There are many different types of servo-drivers. Most are designed to control the speed of dc motors, which improves the efficiency of operating servomotors. Here we shall discuss only armature control of a dc motor and obtain its mathematical model. Elements of DC Motor The basic elements of a motor, as shown in the Figure are the stator, the rotor, the armature, and the commutator. The stator is stationary and provides the magnetic field. The rotor is an iron core that is supported by bearings and is free to rotate. The coils are attached to the rotor, and the combined unit is called the armature.

Basic Principle of DC Motor
The majority of electromechanical devices utilize a magnetic field. The basic principle of Dc motor is based on a wire carrying a current within a magnetic field: a force is exerted on the conductor by the field. Right Hand Rule for Magnetic Field The direction of the force (F) due to a magnetic field (B) is perpendicular to the direction of motion. We will use right hand rule to find the direction of the force of a magnetic field B r F Tm: Motor torque (moment) The product of the magnetic force (F) and the radius (r) will generate the motor moment.

When the sign of the current is reversed, the sign of the torque will be reversed.
