Resistors Used in Drones

Resistors Used in Drones

Resistors, as passive components, are widely used in all the applications consuming electricity including newly rising drones. From 2019 to 2023, the utilization of global drones will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.61%. Drones applications includes access to dangerous or remote areas, aerial photography and video, surveying, wildlife and forest fire records, rescue missions, agriculture military surveillance as well as civilian field. Because drones have low operating or low cost, no casualties, good maneu...

Shunt Resistor's Feature and Usage

Shunt Resistor's Feature and Usage

An ammeter shunt allows the measurement of current values too large to be directly measured by a particular ammeter. In this case, a separate shunt, a resistor of very low but accurately known resistance, is placed in parallel with a voltmeter, so that all of the current to be measured will flow through the shunt. The resistance is chosen so that the resultant voltage drop is measurable, but low enough not to disrupt the circuit. The voltage across the shunt is proportional to the current flowing through it, and so the measur...

Resistors for Wind Turbines  and Tidal Turbines

Resistors for Wind Turbines and Tidal Turbines

Microhm has comprehensive marine experience, and supplied water and air-cooled break and submerged load resistors. Microhm products are designed to withstand adverse marine conditions. For large-scale wind farms where varying wind speeds effect the quality of power an SVC can be fitted to regulate transmission voltage. The SVC can also improve availability by reducing the impact of power fluctuations. Despite being less common than wind or solar power, wave and tidal power has a number of benefits. It is considerably more pr...

Resistors' Classification

Resistors' Classification

Resistors are widely used passive component. They are assorted by function, shape, resistive material and its purposes. Categorized by function, resistors are mainly classified to fixed resistor used in a electric circuit and variable resistor used as a radio volume by changing the resistance. Microhms shunts are typical fixed resistors. Fixed resistors are divided into lead type(with lead wire) and surface mount type without lead wire. Surface mount type includes rectangular type, such as Microhm MPR series, NMS series and c...

Resistors for Motor Control

Resistors for Motor Control

Motor control resistors of any type for any application, including wound-rotor AC motors with slip ring starters, DC motor starters, crane control systems, torque-increasing resistors, field discharge resistors can be designed and built. Electric motors of all types AC single-phase or three-phase and DC have two common characteristics during starting and run-up. Without some form of control, the motor will take very high currents, and the switching may itself cause voltage spikes. The high currents risk overloading the supply...
