Abstract

This work analyses influences of geometry of the micromotor on its performance. Using finite element modeling (FEM) a detailed study of electrostatic force fields between two interacting poles and developed moment of rotation is done. The results received are expanded to the whole motor design where its control and torque characteristics are evaluated. Finally, optimal motor construction conclusions are drawn and new motor is produced by UV lithography
