Modeling and design of air vane motors for minimal torque ripples


This paper presents the analysis and design of a novel air vane motor. Air motors produce very high specific power. They require compressed air rather than electricity; thus avoid sparks and can be used in demanding environments. Same as other types of rotary machines, air vane motors exhibit torque fluctuations. The varying torque curve is a result of… (More)
