What causes a dc motor to lose torque

Definition about motor torque, what is motor torque, torque is a kind of torque, definition of torque in physics, and introduction to the possible causes of maximum torque in motors.

Reasons for the appearance of maximum torque in motors

Motor torque, also known as motor torque, motor torque or motor torque, is simply the magnitude of the force of rotation.

Torque is a kind of torque, the definition of torque in physics: torque = force × force arm

The force arm can be thought of as the radius of rotation of the object driven by the motor. If the torque of the motor is too small, it will not be able to carry the object to be carried, that is to say, it feels that the motor’s “force” is not big enough.

Generally speaking, the strength of the motor to drive the rotation of the machinery is the motor pitch, motor pitch = the force of the pulley dragging the belt X the radius of the pulley.

But the pitch of motor is proportional to the strength of rotating magnetic field and the current in the rotor cage, and proportional to the square of power supply voltage, so the pitch is determined by the factors of current and voltage.

Why does the motor have the maximum torque?

Motor for the emergence of maximum torque for the following reasons.

When the engine is started, the torque increases with the increase in speed.

When in the range of the engine’s medium speed, the torque decreases instead as the speed increases; thus the maximum torque is generated.

What is torque?

Torque: The torque output from the crankshaft end of the engine, the torque is expressed in N.m/r/min, the maximum torque determines the speed performance of the car, especially the acceleration at low speed.

The maximum torque of the motor is one of the basic parameters of the motor, and it is also the most important parameter of the motor.

The maximum torque of the motor is related to the speed and power of the motor, under the condition of certain power, the higher the torque, the lower the speed; the smaller the torque, the higher the speed.

Because of this feature of larger torque of electric motor, the maximum torque of electric motor is more important in hybrid system.

What causes a dc motor to lose torque?

It’s likely demagnetization. The permanent magnets of a DC motor field will tend to become demagnetized whenever a current flows in the motor armature. This effect is known as “armature reaction” and will have a negligible effect in normal use. Under high load conditions, however, when motor current may be high, the effect will cause a reduction in the torque constant of the motor and a consequent reduction in torque output. Above a certain level of armature current, the field magnets will become permanently demagnetized. Therefore, it is important not to exceed the maximum pulse current rating for the motor.

Can a DC motor lose torque?

over time, motors will lose some of their torque as the magnets weaken from being subjected to heat.

What affects torque in a DC motor?

The torque of the DC motor depends on the field flux and magnitude of the armature current. In a separately excited motor, the flux is constant so the torque of the DC motor depends on the armature current. The armature current of the DC motor is very high when the motor starts.

Conclusion(what causes a dc motor to lose torque?)

There are several factors that can cause a DC motor to lose torque:

  1. Insufficient voltage: If the voltage supplied to the motor is too low, it will not be able to develop sufficient torque to perform its intended function.
  2. Overheating: If the motor becomes too hot, the insulation on the windings can break down, which can lead to a loss of torque.
  3. Mechanical wear: As a motor ages, the mechanical components such as the bearings and brushes can wear out, which can reduce the torque output of the motor.
  4. Electrical issues: If there are problems with the electrical connections to the motor, such as loose connections or damaged wires, it can cause a loss of torque.
  5. Load issues: If the load on the motor is too great or too irregular, it can cause a loss of torque.
  6. Motor design: The design of the motor can also affect its torque output. For example, a motor with a low number of turns of wire in its windings will produce less torque than a motor with more turns.
