Dynamic Electric Motor
Inventor: Andrew Billings
IP Status: Pending Application
Overview: Oceanographic exploration relies heavily on large dynamic range electric motors. Traditionally, large dynamic range is produced with high voltage and a transmission. Increasingly these motors in exploration vehicles are run on batteries as a source of power. It is imperative that these motors operate with maximum efficiency in terms of power, space, and weight.
Technology: The Dynamic Electric Motor offers a more efficient power source coupled with noise and weight reduction. Motor kits are torque controlled. Power moves from one motor kit to the next seamlessly as the shaft speed changes. The design allows for low voltage operation and eliminates the need for a transmission. Although developed for oceanographic exploration vehicles, there is a wide range of applications that could benefit from a more efficient electric motor.
