Due to a planned power outage on Friday, 1/14, between 8am-1pm PST, some services may be impacted.
An elevator is a system basically used for vertical transportation of goods or humans. In past and present many motors has been used or in use for Elevator application. Out of which each type of motor has its own merits as well as demerits. By the use of power electronic converters and controllers, DC motors have been replaced by Induction motor and permanent magnet synchronous motor for elevator application. Today, many motor manufacturing industries are focusing on Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motor due to its smooth speed control, high power density and fewer complexities in power converter and controllers when operated with DC supply & compared with other motors. This paper gives the review of BLDC motor for Elevator application and also the presentation of some pre-requirements & calculations of finding the torque, angular speed and rotational speed for BLDC motor design approach. Further different software such as ANSYS-MAXWELL or MATLAB SIMULINK can be used for the analysis for BLDC motor.
