Diesel engines have electrical components to provide startup energy. Key electrical components include: Alternators convert some of the engine’s mechanical energy into electrical energy to charge the system’s…

Motorization

In order to prevent the plug from sparking continuously and disturbing piston cycle, the ignition system must include a switching mechanism to cut power to the plug. ……

Motorization

Single phasing is a condition that occurs when one of the three phases that is supplying voltage to a three-phase motor is lost. This could permanently damage the…

Motorization

These planes can be flown by pilots with private licenses as long as they have the correct training and certifications and follow some specific rules and guidelines. If…

Motorization

Most car engines, in addition to diesel engines, carry recommendations of an oil change every 7,500 miles or at a minimum of every year. Check the owner’s manual…

Motorization

An internal-combustion engine goes through four strokes: intake, compression, combustion (power), and exhaust. As the piston moves during each stroke, it turns the crankshaft. Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc. What…

Motorization

Most turbine blades are manufactured by investment casting (or lost-wax processing). This process involves making a precise negative die of the blade shape that is filled with wax…

Motorization

The available torque from a stepper motor falls off sharply as speed increases. The maximum torque is available when the motor is stationary. Using a higher motor power…

Motorization

A vehicle left idling for a long period of time will often end up with carbon fouling. When a vehicle is not going to leave soon, turning off…

Motorization

DC motors are relatively simple machines: when the load on the motor is constant, speed is proportional to supply voltage. And when supply voltage is constant, speed is…
