Servomechanism | Theory and Working Principle of Servo Motor

Servo Motor Working Principle Before understanding the working principle of servo motor we should understand first the basic of servomechanism. Servomechanism A servo system mainly consists of three basic components – a controlled device, a output sensor, a feedback system. This is an automatic closed loop control system. Here instead of controlling a device by … Read more

Servo Motor Control

Servo Motor Control For understanding servo motor control let us consider an example of servomotor that we have given a signal to rotate by an angle of 45o and then stop and wait for further instruction. The shaft of the DC motor is coupled with another shaft called output shaft, with the help of gear … Read more

What is a Servo Motor?

This is nothing but a simple electric motor, controlled with the help of servomechanism. If the motor as a controlled device, associated with servomechanism is DC motor, then it is commonly known DC Servo Motor. If AC operates the controlled motor, it is called AC Servo Motor. Servo Motor Theory There are some special types … Read more

Servo Motor Controller or Servo Motor Driver

A servo motor controller is a circuit that is used to control the position of a servo motor. It is also called as a servo motor driver. A servo motor controller consists of a controller, the servo motor and the power supply unit. Servo motor driver may be used to control a single servo or … Read more

Servo Motor Applications in Robotics Solar Tracking System etc

Servo motor mechanism is used in a large number of applications which are critical in position control. We cannot use DC motor to control a tail of aircraft because controlling a DC motor for accurate positioning is not only difficult but almost impossible. Servo Motor in Robotics One of the most popular servo motor applications … Read more

DC Servo Motors | Theory of DC Servo Motor

As we know that any electrical motor can be utilized as servo motor if it is controlled by servomechanism. Likewise, if we control a DC motor by means of servomechanism, it would be referred as DC servo motor. There are different types of DC motor, such shunt wound DC motor, series DC motor, Separately excited … Read more
