Project CD

Project CD represents full research information on this 3-year study of the brushless motors. It contains abstracts and research papers with the statements of the problem, hypotheses, working questions for the experiments, results, tables, graphs, etc. It has a lot more information than this web site.

1998 research paper (25 pages) describes the original reed switch based brushless motor.

1999 research paper (37 pages) compares the following motors:

   - motor with 1 electromagnet and 1 reed switch
   - motor with 2 electromagnets in serial connection with 1 reed switch
   - motor with 2 electromagnets in parallel connection with 1 reed switch
   - motor with 2 electromagnets controlled by separate reed switches

2000 research paper (83 pages) provides an extensive research on the motors shown on this site. In addition it contains several other motors, such as double reed switch motor based on push-pull operation, SCR controlled brushless motor, optocoupler based brushless motor, etc.

This CD also contains two PowerPoint presentations created for Texas State Fair and for A&M University.
