I am simulating a BLDC model and one of the parameters I need to enter in my simulation is Viscose Damping (in units of [N.m.s]). I am not familiar with this term, and after some research, I came across a formula that defines it as the ratio of a) the product of the constant torque and back emf constant, and b) the motor resistance. However, that was defined as viscose damping coefficient in units of [N.m/rad/s].
I did not find this value in the motor spec I'm trying to simulate.
My question is this: 1) what is viscose damping - in intuitive terms? What is it dependent on, and how does it affect the current consumed by the motor? 2) what is the difference between viscose damping and viscose damping coefficient and how are they different from each other (beyond the formula above). I assume that the difference in the units defined above is the presence of radians, but still need a clearer understanding. 3) If I know the viscose damping coefficient, how do I go to the viscose damping? Would a simple 2pi take care of the conversion, or is dependent on the rotational speed (omega) of the motor? 4) I also came across viscose damping torque when reading previous answers in this forum. How does the viscose damping torque differentiates itself from all the other 'viscose damping' terms mentioned above. What does it mean in terms of current drawn from the motor?
