Brushless DC motors were developed from conventional brushed DC motors with the availability of solid state power semiconductors. So, why do we discuss brushless dc motor in a chapter on AC motors? Brushless DC motors are similar to AC synchronous motors. The major difference is that synchronous motors develop a sinusoidal back EMF, as compared to a rectangular, or trapezoidal, back EMF for brushless DC motors. Both have stator created rotating magnetic fields producing torque in a magnetic rotor.
Synchronous motors are usually large multi-kilowatt size, often with electromagnet rotors. True synchronous motors are considered to be single speed, a submultiple of the powerline frequency. Brushless DC motor tend to be small– a few watts to tens of watts, with permanent magnet rotors. The speed of a brushless DC motor is not fixed unless driven by a phased locked loop slaved to a reference frequency. The style of construction is either cylindrical or pancake.
The most usual construction, cylindrical, can take on two forms (Figure above). The most common cylindrical style is with the rotor on the inside, above right. This style motor is used in hard disk drives. It is also possible to put the rotor on the outside surrounding the stator. Such is the case with brushless DC fan motors, sans the shaft. This style of construction may be short and fat. However, the direction of the magnetic flux is radial with respect to the rotational axis.
An electric motor is an electromechanical device that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
Most electric motors operate through the interaction of magnetic fields and current-carrying conductors to generate force. The reverse process, producing electrical energy from mechanical energy, is done by generators such as an alternator or a dynamo; some electric motors can also be used as generators, for example, a dc electric motor on a vehicle may perform both tasks. Electric motors and generators are commonly referred to as electric machines.
dc electric motor are found in applications as diverse as industrial fans, blowers and pumps, machine tools, household appliances, power tools, and disk drives. They may be powered by direct current, e.g., a battery powered portable device or motor vehicle, or by alternating current from a central electrical distribution grid or inverter. The smallest motors may be found in electric wristwatches. Medium-size motors of highly standardized dimensions and characteristics provide convenient mechanical power for industrial uses. The very largest electric motors are used for propulsion of ships, pipeline compressors, and water pumps with ratings in the millions of watts. Electric motors may be classified by the source of electric power, by their internal construction, by their application, or by the type of motion they give.
The physical principle behind production of mechanical force by the interactions of an electric current and a magnetic field, Faraday s law of induction, was discovered by Michael Faraday in 1831. Electric motors of increasing efficiency were constructed from 1821 through the end of the 19th century, but commercial exploitation of electric motors on a large scale required efficient electrical generators and electrical distribution networks. The first commercially successful motors were made around 1873

Established since 1972, Dean Group International (DGI) are UK manufacturers of Investment casting. Formerly known as MIC, the company is market focused and rebranded successfully 2 years ago with a brand new web site.
Still privately owned, the company has grown significantly in recent years through a proactive marketing approach and a clear focus on providing the service and quality levels that our customer’s demand, at highly competitive prices.
One of the main drivers for the rebrand is that DGI have been developing supply partnerships with Far East companies since the year 2000, and this has lead to a natural progression to supply of other types of product. Whilst investment casting (IC) are still the largest part of the business, we now also source other types of product such as commercial grade IC, sand castings, die castings and any number of additional processes including machining, heat treatment, plating and polishing.
Whether you want an investment casting, sand casting or die casting, we can work from basic information. Send your drawing data, ideas or sample to us for evaluation – from this we can provide a budget price. This is a free service and may help you to establish whether your idea is commercially viable. With our years of experience, we will evaluate your part and offer the best solution- this may be investment casting but could equally be one of our other processes.

Loading guidelines have been developed based on proportional allocation of load current for each DC bus rail based on the MAXIMUM CURRENT rating of each DC bus rail.
For 100% load level the maximum rating for each DC bus rail is decreased proportionately to ensure that the total combined loading for all the output busses is equal to the overall rating of the power supply AND the maximum combined rating for a subset of the output busses (e.g., +5V and +3.3V) is not exceeded.
The purposes of this Guideline are to ensure that the loading for each DC bus for a multi output server power supply is consistent when measuring power supply efficiency and to allow consistency in comparing server power supply efficiency reported by vendors as part of the electrical specification.
The graph in Figure A depicts a typical server power supply efficiency pattern, omitting the efficiency percentages, which can vary by power supply. As you can see in Figure A, at below 40% to 50% utilization, power supplies aren’t fully efficient. In fact, at a load of 20%, power supply efficiency can be as much as 10% lower than efficiency at the 50% load mark and even less efficient at lower levels. From about 60% usage to 100% usage, there is a noticeable efficiency drop-off as well, although this drop-off appears to be much less noticeable for server-based power supplies. In my research for this post, I saw some desktop power supplies that, at 100% usage, would drop to very poor efficiency levels, so there is a vast variety of operating reality out there. In other words, one size does not fit all, so your results may vary.

One of the advantages of cast steel is the design flexibility, the designer of the casting have the greatest freedom of design choices, especially the complex shape and hollow cross-section parts.
Cast steel has the metallurgy manufacturing flexibility and strongest variability, you can choose a different chemical composition and control, adapted to the various requirements of different projects. By different heat treatment choice in the larger context of the mechanical properties and performance, and good weldability and workability.
Cast steel is a kind of isotropic material and can be made into the overall structural strength steel castings, thereby improving the reliability of the project. Coupled with the design and weight the advantages of short delivery time, price and economy has a competitive advantage.
The weight range of steel castings is larger. Little weight can be only a few dozen grams of molten mold precision castings, and the weight of large steel castings up to several tons, dozens of tons or hundreds of tons.
Steel castings can be used for a variety of working conditions, and its mechanical properties superior to any other casting alloys, and a variety of high-alloy steel for special purposes. To withstand high tensile stress or dynamic load of components, it is important pressure vessel castings in low or high temperature by the large and important part load key parts, in principle, should give priority to steel castings.
