How does a Brushless DC Motor work?
The brushless DC motor consists of a motor body and a driver and is a typical mechatronic product. A brushless motor refers to a motor without brushes and commutators (or collector rings), also known as a commutator-free motor. The brushless DC motor (BLDC) replaces the mechanical commutator with an electronic commutator, so the brushless DC motor not only has the characteristics of good speed regulation performance of the DC motor, but also has the characteristics of the simple structure of the AC motor, no commutation sparks, and reliable operation and the advantages of easy maintenance.
How does an ESC Work?
An electronic speed control (ESC) is an electronic circuit that controls and regulates the speed of an electric motor. It may also provide reversing of the motor and dynamic braking. The electronic speed controller is an essential part of an electric propulsion system's hardware. It acts like the brain of the system by telling the motor how fast to go based on data signals it receives from the throttle controller.
