Infolytica Corporation announced today it will be co-hosting two workshops with electric motor expert Jim Hendershot. The workshops will cover useful tips and techniques on how to design brushless dc and induction type motors. The first session on BLDC is on May 26, 2010 in Dayton, OH and costs $595USD. The second session on induction motors is on May 27, 2010 in Dayton, OH and costs $595USD. A special rate of $995 USD for both sessions is available. To register, visit http://www.jh-workshop.com.
“Designing Your BLDC Motor” and “Designing Your Induction Motor” workshops will focus on practical problems faced by motor designers. Jim will approach the design process based on the motor specifications provided by the attendees. MotorSolve, the electric motor design software from Infolytica Corporation, will be used during the workshop to calculate the motor performance characteristics.
The workshops cover the basic aspects of motor design:
Design specification: detailed discussions of typical design criteria including required power, efficiency, drive configurations, size constraints, cooling methods etc.
Getting an initial design:
- Sizing of the motor using analytic and other methods
- Rotor and stator configurations
- Air gap shear stress based outer and inner diameters
- Loss and efficiency considerations
Improving performance with each design iteration
Complete motor performance characteristics
Jim has over 40 years experience in the field of manufacturing and designing electric motors. With past key employments at United Technologies, General Motors, Clifton Precision, Berger Lahr & Pacific Scientific, he has designed hundreds of motors.
Cost and Registration
The cost of the workshop is $595 USD per session:
Session 1 - May 26, 2010: BLDC motors
Session 2 - May 27, 2010: IM motors
Until May 7, 2010 there is a special rate of $995 USD for both sessions.
