Permanent Magnet Stepper Motor-2 Phase

Category: Toolbox > eDrives > eMotors (Legacy) > Motors

Description: The Permanent Magnet Stepper Motor-2 Phase block uses the set of coupled nonlinear differential equations that describe motion of a 2-phase permanent magnet stepper motor with bipolar windings (4 wire input). Typical linear electrical and mechanical properties are provided, as well as nonlinear properties, including bearing stiction and Coulomb friction for a high-fidelity simulation of stepper motor dynamics. The number of rotor teeth determines the full step angle (resolution) of the motor. The step angle in degrees is equal to 360/(number of rotor teeth).

Holding Torque: Represents the motor holding torque.

Number of Rotor Teeth: Indicates the physical number of teeth in the rotor.

Rotor Moment of Inertia: Represents the rotor moment of inertia with respect to the axis of rotation.

Rotor Shaft Coulomb Friction Magnitude: Allows specification of constant directional dissipative force (Coulomb model).


Rotor Shaft Stiction Factor: Allows specification of a stiction force value or break-away torque. This parameter is normally not specified by the motor manufacturer, but can be obtained experimentally.


Rotor Shaft Viscous Damping Factor: Indicates the factor that linearly relates viscous damping force to angular velocity. This parameter is normally not specified by the motor manufacturer but can be determined experimentally.

Stator Inductance (per phase): Represents the inductance of the stator coil windings (per phase).

Stator Resistance (per phase): Represents the resistance of the stator coil windings (per phase).
