Maximizing Motor Power at Constant Voltage Principles Of Engineering 2012 Project Lead The Way, Inc. Speed Depends on Load Torque When a motor is loaded with no torque, it spins at no-load speed, w0 . w0 = no-load speed When a motor is loaded with the stall torque tstall or more, the motor will stop. tstall = stall torque

Speed vs. Torque is Linear Speed w No-load speed w0 Half speed Stall = + tstall Torque t

Speed w Optional slide for the genius: Speed vs. Torque Depends on Voltage 7 5 3 V V V m ot

w Power = Torque x Speed Speed w No power. Why? w0 No power. Why? tstall Torque t

Speed w Maximum Power at Stall Torque w0 Maximum power. Why? tstall = + Torque t tstall

Why half stall torque? = + Linear equation from last slide. Multiply both = + () sides by torque, [

= + No load Maximum power tstall Torque t Stall VEX Application: Pick a Gear Ratio

Step 1. This motor is stalled. What is the stall torque? = (3 in.)(1.4 lb) = 4.2 lbin. VEX motor F = 1.4 lb tstall = d x F d = 3 in. Step 2. At what torque will the motor deliver maximum power? tmaxPower = tstall = (4.2 lbin.) = 2.1 lbin.

VEX Application: Pick a Gear Ratio Step 3. The same motor as in the last slide is being used to power a winch with a drum of radius 2 in. lifting 0.2 lb. What torque is the motor applying? d= tout = d x F n. F = 0.2 lbs 2i

= (2 in.)(0.2 lb) = 0.4 lbin. VEX Application: Pick a Gear Ratio Step 4. Instead of direct drive, what gear ratio would make the motor deliver maximum power? d= GR = n. F = 0.2 lbs

2i VEX Application: Pick a Gear Ratio Now the winch is geared so that the motor is delivering half its stall torque, for maximum power. GR GR== Human Application: Bicycle gears Can you explain why changing gears on a bike helps a person win a race that goes up and down hills? References
