Applications and advantages of all types of Motor- DC Motors, AC motors, Universal Motors



A motor is an electric machine which can convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. The electrical motor works on the principle of Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction. In this post, we will discuss the Applications and Advantages of all types of motor.

There are mainly three types of motor,
  1. DC Motor
  2. AC Motor
  3. Universal Motor
The motor which can run on DC supply is called DC Motor.
The motor which can run on AC supply is called AC Motor.
The motor which can run on both AC and DC supply is called Universal Motor.


Applications and Advantages of all types of DC Motor
