Title: Motor for Makers: A Guide to Steppers, Servos, and Other Electrical Machines
Author : Matthew Scarpino
ABOUT THE BOOK
“Motors for Makers” book is for makers. If you’re looking for a textbook on phasor diagrams and Maxwell’s equations, this isn’t the book for you. If you’re looking for practical information related to motor operation and control, you’ve come to the right place.
If you want to know about the different types of motors and what they’re good for, this is the book to have. The author has done his best to make motors comprehensible to non-engineers, but this book is not for beginners.
In writing this book, he assumed that you already know about volts, amps, and ohms. Further, he assumed that you can look at a simple circuit diagram and get a sense for how the system works.
