Can a BLDC ceiling fan consume 28W or lesser?

Can a BLDC ceiling fan consume 28W or lesser?

BLDC ceiling fans are marketed based only on their power consumption. But the power consumption depends on various other parameters, size, airflow, speed to name a few. Especially the ’28 W‘ is being used in the market a lot, is it true? Can a BLDC ceiling fan consume 28W or lesser? There could be two possibilities: 1.

FAN LAWS

FAN LAWS

Formulae 1 to 4 can be applied to any fan provided the diameter does not change. If the diameter does not change the fans must be geometrically similar. The units of density, fan rotational speed and diameter are not important as long as both are the same. In formulae 5 to 8 the units shown in the nomenclature must be used to satisfy the formulae Volume Flow Pressure Absorbed Power Sound Power Level Density Fan Total Efficiency % Fan Total…

High flow ceiling fans & High speed ceiling fans

High flow ceiling fans & High speed ceiling fans

How ceiling fans move air? A ceiling fan is a simple electrical appliance with blades mounted on a motor which rotates the blades to push the air and create airflow. The airflow from ceiling fans is measured in Cubic Meter Per Minute (CMM). The airflow has two components, the volume of air moved and the speed at which that volume of air moves. Fan designers vary the two components to make fans suitable for different applications with the same airflow….

How do you know Superfan saves energy?

How do you know Superfan saves energy?

Government of India through the Ministry of Power operates an agency called Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) that assigns energy efficiency rating to appliances that are participating.  The efficiency is rated in a star-based system, with ‘5 stars’ indicating the most efficient and ‘1 star’ the least efficient. BEE formulates an efficiency parameter and its required value for each appliance. Many of us are familiar with the star rating in ACs & refrigerators. Recently, it was ruled that from Jan…

BLDC Ceiling Fans Operate At Stable Speed Even During Fluctuations

BLDC Ceiling Fans Operate At Stable Speed Even During Fluctuations

Speed fluctuation in regular ceiling fans Ever experienced that your regular ceiling fan runs at a higher speed in the early hours of the morning or change speed on its own? This speed fluctuation stems from the inherent behaviour of the type of motor used in the ceiling fan. A regular ceiling fan is driven by Alternating Current Induction Motor (ACIM), for which, loosely speaking, the input supply voltage determines the rotation speed. The domestic input supply voltage (ideally 230V)…

A brief note on BLDC motors and their application in ceiling fans

A brief note on BLDC motors and their application in ceiling fans

Motors are the primary component in a ceiling fan and this blog throws light on working of ceiling fan motors especially BLDC motors. Electric Motor And It’s Working We come across hundreds of motors in our daily life from domestic to industrial applications. Motors are electrical machines that convert electrical energy into mechanical energy (rotational motion). This rotational motion can be translated into linear motions as well based on the application. All electric motors have the following parts: Stator –…
