Load Types

Revision 1.0

Load Characteristics

Introduction

Motor loads are classified into two main groups depending on how their torque requirement varies

with operating speed. The following paragraphs deal with the various load types found in industry.

**Constant Torque Load
**

The torque demanded by the load is constant throughout the speed range. Loads of these types

are essentially friction loads. Figure 2.1 shows the constant torque and it’s effect on horsepower

demanded by the load.

**Since HP is a product of Torque times speed, and torque remains constant in this type of load,
**

horsepower is a function of speed.

Torque x Speed

HP =

5250

Where:

Torque = lb-ft.

Speed = RPM

5250 = a proportionality constant

**Examples of this type of load are conveyors and extruders. Constant torque is also used when
**

shock loads, overloads or high inertia loads are encountered.

**Variable Torque Load
**

With this type of load, the torque demand increases with speed, usually speed squared (Speed ).

Torque Constant x (Speed)2

Horsepower is typically proportional to speed cubed (Speed ).

Figure 2.2 shows the variable torque and it’s effect on horsepower demanded by the load.

pumps and blowers. Figure 2. This type of load requires much lower torque at low speeds than at high speeds.3 Constant Horsepower Load 100 100 Torque Horse- Demanded power by the Demanded Load by the (%) Load BASE (%) BASE 100 200 100 200 Examples of this type of load are center-driven winders and machine tool spindles.2 Variable Torque Load 100 100 Torque Horsepower Demanded Demanded by the by the Load Load (%) (%) Speed (%) 100 Speed (%) 100 Examples of loads that exhibit variable load torque characteristics are centrifugal fans.3 shows the constant horsepower and variable torque demanded by the load.doc Page 2 of 2 . Figure 2. LoadTypes01. The horsepower demanded by the load is constant within the speed range. Figure 2. The speed and torque are inversely proportional to each other. Constant Horsepower Operation This is a function of the motor being operated above base motor speed.
