This presentation will discuss the need for designers to understand the dynamic issues of the systems that they design by focusing on real world examples.
We are all familiar with steady state, high accuracy, efficiency and performance measurements of our motor systems. But motors very rarely operate in this mode in the real world. Weather it is a washing machine, robotic / machine tool, electric car, electric train, etc. All of these and most other electric motors around us have a dynamic performance, but often this is not characterised or understood. This presentation is focused at creating an awareness of dynamic measurements and what knowledge can be gleaned about a system from these measurements. It will also contrast the pros and cons of both the static and dynamic measurements and help motor system designers know if they should be looking beyond simple static efficiency measurements by also characterising the dynamic performance of their systems.
The aim of this presentation is to make motor system designers aware of the dynamic nature of their motor systems and to think beyond the obvious.
