## What is motor and its working principle?

Electric motor: A motor is a device which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Principle of motor : A motor works on the principle that when a rectangular coil is placed in a magnetic field and current is passed through it. A force acts on the coil which rotates it continuously.

What is motor and its types?

There are at least a dozen different types of electric motors, but there are two main classifications: alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC). How the windings within AC and DC motors interact with each other to produce mechanical force creates further distinctions within each of these classifications.

### What is DC motor working principle?

The DC motor is the motor which converts the direct current into the mechanical work. It works on the principle of Lorentz Law, which states that “the current carrying conductor placed in a magnetic and electric field experience a force”. And that force is the Lorentz force.

What is motor principle?

The electric motor works on the principle of magnetic effects of current. Its principle is when a rectangular coil is placed in a magnetic field and current is passed through it, the coil rotates as a result of the forces acting on the coil.

## What are the 2 types of motor?

The two main types of AC motors are induction motors and synchronous motors. The induction motor (or asynchronous motor) always relies on a small difference in speed between the stator rotating magnetic field and the rotor shaft speed called slip to induce rotor current in the rotor AC winding.

### What are the two types of motors?

The various types of motors include:

• DC Motors.
• Synchronous Motors.
• 3 Phase Induction Motors (a type of induction motor)
• Single Phase Induction Motors (a type of induction motor)
• Other special, hyper-specific motors.
