Electric Motors Nameplate Data Explanation | NEMA

Electric Motor Nameplate DATA

All performance information for a motor is based on the motor being supplied by the power at the potential difference and frequency stated on the nameplate. A motor rating consists of the power output, speed, potential difference, and current specified by the manufacturer. A typical motor nameplate is shown below. It includes the following information, …

What is Brushless DC Motor and Application?

brushless dc motor

The motor is indisputably one of the primary machines in electromechanical engineering. It is a machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. When you see a moving system that uses electricity, the power to move is provided by a motor. Depending on the type of electrical power, there are AC motors and DC motors. …

Servo Motor Construction, Working and Applications

Servo Motor

Definition A servo motor is a basic electrical device that is used to rotate or move the gadgets with great precision and accuracy at different angles and with different velocities. It is a closed-loop feedback-controlled system. The main feature that distinguishes it from other motors is its propensity to work accurately with distance and precise …

Synchronous Motor Working Principle and Construction

Synchronous Motor Working Principle and Construction

Synchronous motor construction is very similar to synchronous generator construction except that most motors are salient-pole machines. Principle and Operation of┬áSynchronous Motor When an induction motor is connected to a three-phase supply, a rotating magnetic field is established; this induces currents in the rotor windings, thereby producing a torque. The rotor can never turn at …
