A Deep Dive into the Technology of the Brushless Universal Motor - TWIN CITIES PEL35 CHAPTER on 23-September-2015

Imagine a simpler and lower cost alternative to high efficiency AC induction motors, brushless permanent magnet motors and expensive drives.  For applications less than 15 HP, the Brushless Universal Motor, developed by Digital Power Engineering, delivers super-premium, IE4 efficiency without permanent magnets (PM), expensive drives, or the typical EMI and power quality problems inherent in present AC or PM motor/ drive systems at a system price up to 50% less than current solutions.

This simple motor and drive builds on the elemental sinusoidal concepts of motion technology and applies cutting edge 21st Century technology to create high efficiency, environmental compatibility and controllability in a single, drop in package. In this presentation Mr. Gary Box, Owner of Digital Power Engineering, will detail the technology behind the Brushless Universal Motor and illustrate the advantages of the technology in DC, 3 phase and single phase electric motion applications.
