Dynamic characteristics of a thermomagnetic motor have been described. The motor operates stably under constant heat flow. The torque, the output, and the efficiency take the maximum at the number of revolutions which is determined by thermal resistances. The temperature range for the thermomagnetic motor to operate stably is clarified. An output of several watts may be achieved so that such motors might be used in control devices.
