I have 2 identical DC motors rated at 12 volts each. I also have a 12-volt power supply. If I put these in parallel, would the motors draw their required current, or is it limited to the current drawn from one motor? I.e. if both motors draw 0.1 amps each, will there be a total of 0.2 amps drawn from the power supply if the motors are in parallel, or will the total current be limited to 0.1 amps because 'amps are shared in a parallel circuit'? Or, perhaps, would it be best to power the 2 motors in series with a 24-volt power supply?
The power supply will easily be able to handle the currents that the motors draw - it is only a small scale application.
I don't feel like much context is needed for this question, but please ask if necessary.
Many thanks in advance!
