Recently, we added a new topic to the website called brushless DC motors also known as BLDC. BLDC motors are used in many applications for several reasons: they are light, have high efficiency, and are quite compact.
One of the neat things you can do is to make different circuits that will turn the electromagnet on and off. This makes for some real innovative designs. Although we have built four BLDC motors from kits from the folks at the Simple Electric Motor company, they also have other kits that you can investigate and build. Once you feel comfortable about building these kits it is time to advance and come up with your own designs.
Here is the link to our new BLDC motor page. Enjoy something new!
