What is an electric motor and how does an electric motor work?

An electric motor is part of a larger class of devices known as electric machines. In order to define an electric motor we need to first answer the question, what is electrical induction .

Electromagnetic induction is the production of an electromotive force (emf) in a conductor as a result of a changing magnetic field about the conductor. An electric motor is therefore an electro-mechanical energy converter that uses electromagnetic forces to turn electrical energy into mechanical energy.

Which is the difference between asynchronous and synchronous motors? – DC motor versus AC motor comparison

A DC motor works in the same principle as an AC motor, with a mechanism to allow it to rotate even if the supply is not alternating. Regular motors work because the direction of current reverses (alternates) every half cycle, rendering the armature to rotate.

    Ayomide, check your email. I need your help (your opinion about developing this blog further).

  2. Hello George, I want to start developing like you. Please how can I get your lectures videos and files so that I can create something similar to you.

  3. Glad to see you come out with a new Excel model. Hope there’s more coming!

  4. Glad to see you are back George

  5. Love your work. I always check back. Glad to see you’re back!

  6. Really a very good blog, i wish you great success this 2017 from Bolivia – La Paz.
