Electrical Motors Industry Information

Electrical Motors

Electrical motors operate utilizing electrical current power, typically using alternating current (AC) but direct current (DC) can also be used. They then convert that power from electrical into mechanical power. The electrical power is converted into mechanical power by means of the interaction of the electrical current and a magnetic field produced within the motor. Although either AC or DC must be used in most cases, there are some electrical motors, referred to as universal motors, that are capable of operating by means of either type of electrical current flow.

Applications of Electrical Motors

Electrical motors are able to provide mechanical energy to a vast spectrum of equipment.

These motors are essential parts in many applications and industries, including:

Industrial Manufacturing
For use in various machine tools for various processing and assembly applications.
Residential
To power diverse household appliances, such as air conditioners, dishwashers, and refrigerators.
Construction
For use in the powering of various electrical power tools and portable lighting.
Automotive
To power parts of various vehicles, such as cars, vans, and scooters.
Electronics
For use in electrical devices, including DVD powers, hard drives, and CD players.

Additional industries that utilize electrical motors include office equipment, military, and aerospace.

Electrical Motor Design and Function

Electrical motors come in two main types of designs: brushed motors and brushless motors. A brushed motor operates based upon the actions of a wound rotor, a commutator (equipped with numerous brushes), and a wound or permanent magnet stator. The brushes on the commutator operate by allowing the current to flow through them and arrive at the wound rotor. Capable of operation without the use of brushes to transfer the electrical current, brushless electric motors consist of a permanent magnet external rotor, a three-phase coil, a type of sensor, and drive electronics. Instead of brushes, brushless motors transfer the current by means of the sensors.

In addition, electrical motors can be broken into four main types: servo motors, synchronous motors, induction motors, and electrostatic motors, also known as capacitor motors. Servo motors operate based on a servomechanism that utilizes error-sensing feedback to function and make corrections. Synchronous motors are a type of AC motor that operate based on a rotating magnetic field, which is the result of the motor's rotor and current passing at the same rate. Induction motors operate by means of a voltage produced across a conductor, being the rotor, as it is moving through a magnetic field. Lastly, electrostatic motors operate based on the principle of the attraction and repulsion of an electric charge.
