*Definition:

An electric motor is a machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. There are several different kinds of motors, including synchronous, induction and single phase. These types of motors are used for a variety of purposes.

An electric motor is a machine which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. The motor can be used to produce a rotary force or a linear force. There are a variety of types of motors and different ways of controlling them. The basic working principle of an electric motor is that current flowing through the wire generates a magnetic field around the wire. This magnetic field induces a torque on the rotor conductors. The torque is the force required to turn the shaft.

A large motor can have a power rating of over 100 megawatts. This is due to the rotor conductors are short-circuited at each end. The induced voltage is reduced as the rotor moves and the torque is proportional to the induced voltage. The most common speed for a 60-hertz motor is 1,800 and 1,200 revolutions per minute. The speed can be adjusted by adjusting the voltage and reducing the time the motor is left on.

Market Dynamics:
