SEED Guides Unit Selection - Electric Motor < >1. Aims
The purpose of this guide is to enable the user to determine the attributes required of an electric motor to meet a specific power transmission need and then to select one from those offered by manufacturers. It has been compiled as part of a series which covers typical elements of a system.
In this Guide only conventional power transmission motors will be considered. This covers AC and DC motors between about 30 watts and 30 kilowatts. Other motors will be dealt with in other Guides.
Figure 1 shows a generalised procedure for selecting elements in the system. It shows that it is necessary to determine information about the drive system before the selection can take place.
