Electric Motors (GBL14G)


This book deals with the principles and characteristics of all types of electric motors likely to be used in small engineering workshops, together with their applications and operation. It also covers matters such as speed control, electric braking, generators, installation, testing, and safety aspects - everything, in fact, of practical value to the small workshop user.

The book sets out in simple terms the essential characteristics and operating limitations of the principle motor and generator types. The approach is essentially practical in nature with few calculations needing anything more than simple arithmetic, giving basic operation and installation information to the first time user. The book shows you how to apply automotive, industrial and domestic motors in home-made applications, and identify their ratings; less common motor and generator types such as servo and stepper motors are included. Readily available in the surplus market, the unusual types can be extremely useful in special applications. The book includes data about motor starting systems, electronic speed control and motor braking.

The author, Jim Cox, was Chief Engineer of a well-known electronics company and spent his working life closely involved with electronic and electro-magnetical equipment using every type of electric motor; he has also been a keen model engineer for some thirty years and is thus well aware of the needs of small engineering shops and the capabilities of their owners.

Author: Cox, Jim. Special Interest Model Books. 134 pages, illustrated.
