Magnetic spin top drive
« on: May 16, 2021, 02:58:36 AM »
I modified the solar pendulum drive circuit from here:
https://nutsvolts.texterity.com/nutsvolts/201208?pg=32#pg32
to make a magnetic spin top drive:

Very nice!  Do you think it would work as a synchronous motor, running coil at line frequency without feedback?  Perhaps with more than 2 poles on the rotor, for example orient the magnets NSNS.

This is a great little project, I will make this with my kids :) They love spinning tops in the first place, so making a circuit to help them keeping it spinning is going to be a hit.

I must have some of those fan motors around... I know they are somewhere...

  I'm not sure how well this configuration would work as a synchronous motor because the stator is not producing a rotating magnetic field where the top is. Also I removed the copper shading turn to maximize flux density.
  I found that the NSNS magnet arrangement does not work well because the diametrically opposed magnets have the same polarity: N to N and S to S so when the top got between the two poles of the stator no torque was produced.

making a circuit to help them keeping it spinning is going to be a hit.
An even simpler circuit that uses just two coils and a transistor is shown on this page as “The Perpetual Top”
http://www.its.caltech.edu/~atomic/display/displaycase.htm

The down side of this circuit is that both coils need to have several thousand turns.
