This outstanding reference book on stepping motors has now been significantly updated for the 4th Edition. It is intended to bring the reader up to date with trends that have emerged since the third edition was published. This book provides an introductory text which will enable the reader to appreciate the essential characteristics of stepping motor systems, and to understand how these characteristics are being exploited in the continuing development of new motors, drive and controllers. Stepping motor technology is well established and used for motion control, notably for computer peripherals but wherever digital control is employed. Acarnley's text is widely known and used; this new edition adds coverage of many new applications.

About the Author:

Paul Acarnley is Professor of Electric Drives at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. His interest in stepping motors started at Leeds University, with a Ph.D. on the torque-producing capabilities of variable-reluctance stepping motors, and continued at Cambridge University, with work on new closed-loop and microprocessor-based control techniques. Besides stepping motors, Paul Acarnley's research interests include the application in electric drives of methods for estimating and controlling speed, rotor position, flux, torque and temperature. He is a Fellow of the IET.


'the book is an excellent addition to the library of an engineer or graduate student seeking to understand stepper motors. It provides a succinct overview of the key concepts, and at a reasonable price too.' -- Mike Barnes * International Journal of Electrical Engineering Education *
