Scope: Small electric motors of up to 1kW output power are central to a large number of engineering applications and are installed as drive elements in many types of consumer and industrial equipment. This book, a translation from German, addresses those involved with specifying, developing, manufacturing or marketing small motors. It covers the various function principles of small motors, including rotating field machines, commutator machines, recent developments in the use of electronics in motors and the relationship between the motor and its driven load.
