Universal-motor speed control

Posted on Nov 24, 2012

Simple half-wave motor speed control is effective for use with small universal (ac/dc) motors. Maximum current capability 2 amps RMS. Because speed-dependent feedback is provided, the control gives excellent torque characteristics to the motor, even at low rotational speeds

Normal operation at maximum speed can be achieved by closing switch Si, thus bypassing the SCR.
