Micromachines: principles of operation, dynamics, and control

  title={Micromachines: principles of operation, dynamics, and control},
  author={S. S. Irudayaraj and Ali Emadi},
  journal={IEEE International Conference on Electric Machines and Drives, 2005.},
The paper addresses a comprehensive set of issues related to micromachines in an attempt to qualitatively present forth a complete overview of the field of micro electric machinery. Fundamental concepts of electrostatics and electromagnetics that form the basis and dictate the operation of micromachines are first outlined. Scaling arguments for magnetic micromachines are presented. Principles of operation of both electrostatic and electromagnetic micromachines are explained and a useful form of… CONTINUE READING
