Measuring systems for investigation into thermal phenomena appearing in drive systems with electric micromotors

Jakub Wierciak
The thermal phenomena occurring in mechatronic devices may affect the device performance characteristics in various ways. Electrical drive systems are main sources of heat emission inside the device. The paper touches upon the problems of modelling and identification of thermal models of drive systems, that are useful tool for predicting thermal behaviour of the devices analysed by means of simulation. The measuring systems designed to support such works are presented.
