Electric motors: what are they?

The electric motor turns electrical energy into mechanical energy. Electric motors work mainly due to the relation between magnetic and electric fields. A motor has many parts that allow it to revolve continuously and provide power when required. Electric motors can operate with either direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC), and both have advantages and disadvantages.

How electric motor works:

An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.   In order to operate, an electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. The motor generates force as a result of a magnetic field interacting with it. There are many applications for electric motors. There are a few basic questions to answer when selecting a motor are the most important questions for any application. And the question is what type of electric motor chooses and which specifications matter.

Types of motor

DC motors come in many types, but brushless and brushed motors are the most common. In addition, there are vibrating motors, stepper motors, and servo motors. There are many types of brush motors, but DC brush motors are the most common. You can find them in appliances, toys, and cars. In other words DC brush motors are easy to use, inexpensive to produce, and have excellent torque at low speeds. Its main drawback is that they need constant maintenance to replace worn-out brushes. Brush heating limits the speed of DC brush motors, and brush arcs can generate electromagnetic noise.

Brushless DC motors- Brushless DC motors use permanent magnets. The construction of brushless motors is usually similar to that of permanent magnet synchronous motors. Almost all electronic equipment uses brushless motors to drive its small cooling fans.
