This paper presents the design and analysis of a 400-step hybrid stepper motor for spacecraft applications. The design of the hybrid stepper motor for achieving a specific performance requires the choice of appropriate tooth geometry. In this paper, a detailed account of the results of two-dimensional finite-element (FE) analysis conducted with different tooth width/tooth pitch ratios (t/λ) and also with different tooth shapes such as square and trapezoidal, is presented. The use of equal t… CONTINUE READING
