## What is the difference between 12V and 24v motor?

A 12V motor draws twice the current that a 24-V motor uses. So, if your kid wants to go up a steep drive, a 24V ride-on will give more power than the 12V counterparts. The wires in a 12V motor will also be twice the size compared to a 24V motor which runs more efficiently.

## What happens if you Underpower a DC motor?

Running a DC motor below nominal voltage generally will not cause any problems with the motor. If anything, the motor will last longer because it won’t be subject to the same level of stress (from heat, friction, and general wear) as it is when running at the full nominal voltage.

## Can I run a 24v DC motor on 12V?

The biggest problem is the circuit electronics may not run on 12V and, yes your performance will be crap. The fuse does nothing to drop volts only limits amps so that thought is not relevant. 24v hooked to 12v will spin for a while on a full battery but there will be no torque. You could stop it with your hand.

## Why the DC motor Cannot be operated below a certain minimum speed?

Operating a motor at a voltage below nominal generally has no detrimental effect on performance. In fact, running a motor at lower than nominal voltage (and, therefore, slower than nominal speed) can result in less brush and commutator wear (for brushed motors), lower current consumption, and longer motor life.

## Is 24v better than 12v?

In an electric vehicle the power usually comes from the battery, and is converted by the motor into energy. Electrical power is volts multiplied by amps so that 40 amps from a 12v battery is 480 watts. so a 24v system is always better than a 12v system – provided you can physically fit two batteries.

## Which is better 12v or 24v trolling motor?

12-volt trolling motors are usually less powerful than their 24-volt counterparts. This makes them less suitable for larger and heavier boats. Higher voltage systems, such as 24V or 36V tend to be more powerful and more efficient, due to the lower current flowing through the cables at the same power output.

## How much can you Overvolt a DC motor?

You can run at 48 volts as long as 1) you don’t exceed the maximum current, and 2) you don’t exceed the maximum speed. I regularly run 24 volt motors from a 120 or 160 volt DC bus, using a trans-impedance amplifier to control the current.

## Why do motors burn in low voltage?

The reason is fairly simple. As the voltage level goes up, the current is reduced and lower current usually equates to less heat generation within the motor windings. A low voltage forces a motor to draw extra current to deliver the power expected of it thus overheating the motor windings.

## Can you run a 12v motor on 6v?

If you give a 6 V to 12 V motor, the motor will run at half of its rated speed and the Torque will also reduce. Is this true? The motor is on half of its speed.

## Will a 12V motor run on 9V?

It’s possible to run a 12V motor on 9V, but it will run slower and with less Torque.

## Are solar panels 12V or 24v?

A 24v solar panel produces high voltage of around 32-36 volts using 72 solar cells. Since current supplied is half of the power supplied voltage drop is relatively low. 24 Volt system can be used for appliances of different voltage, both 12v and 24v. E.g., a 24v solar panel can be charge a 12v battery bank.

## How can the speed of a DC motor be controlled?

Thus, the speed of a DC motor can control in three ways: By varying the flux, and by varying the current through field winding. By varying the armature voltage, and the armature resistance. Through the supply voltage.

## How can you reduce the speed of a DC motor?

Thus, the speed of a DC motor can be controlled in three ways:

1. By varying the supply voltage.
2. By varying the flux, and by varying the current through the field winding.
3. By varying the armature voltage, and by varying the armature resistance.

## Which motor has the poorest speed control?

1. Which of the following DC motor has the poorest speed control? Explanation: DC series motor at no load condition gives infinite speed ideally. Practically it will damage all the armature circuit.
