Types of AC motors

An AC motor requires an AC input to produce a rotating magnetic field. This field interacts with rotor conductors and makes it rotate with the stator field. The two main types of AC motors are Induction motors and Synchronous motors. The figure below shows a detailed explanation of AC motors. **Before starting the types of … Read more

12 key differences between Induction Motor & Synchronous Motor

difference between induction motor and synchronous motor

An AC motor is simply an electromechanical circuit that converts electrical energy to mechanical energy. This mechanical energy is either utilized in industrial or domestic applications. Based on the operating principle, we can classify AC motors into two types. i.e., Induction and Synchronous Motors. If these names are unfamiliar to you, don’t worry and stick … Read more
