What are Electric Motors?

A motor is electrical machinery that transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy to operate machinery. These devices produce rotational magnetic fields to create rotational force, and they are driven by electrical energy that has been stored or obtained directly from an electrical source. The force is then applied to move a shaft, which runs machinery.

Types of Industrial Electric Motors

Even though electric motors come in a wide variety of designs with different safety and operational aspects, they are widely classified into two categories, i.e., AC motors and DC motors. Let's look into the difference between these two types in detail:

AC Electric Motors

As the name implies, these highly effective motors run on alternating currents. They have an electromagnetically powered stator and rotor with copper windings. Many industry specialists believe AC motors are more powerful than DC motors because they can run complicated and more delicate machinery and provide more torque.

Three-phase Ac induction motors are the most common type of motor used in industries. These motors are ideal for industrial applications since they are very dependable and affordable.

A revolving magnetic field created by the electric current in the rotor generates an electric current in the stator. The magnetic field produced by the rotor's current interacts with the stator's magnetic field to allow the rotor to rotate.

DC Electric Motors

In a DC motor, the stator creates a static magnetic field, whereas the rotor creates a rotating magnetic field. The magnetic fields of the stator and rotor are parallel.

A DC motor creates the magnetic field using a permanent magnet rather than electromagnets. Hence, the magnetic field is constantly present even if the motor is not running. DC motors are typically used to drive larger, more difficult-to-maintain machinery.

Electric Motor Applications in the Industrial Sector

Electric motors are used in many different mechanical devices across the industry. Typical industrial applications comprise the following:

  • HVAC Units
  • Fans
  • Heavy-Duty Machinery
  • Lathes
  • Blowers
  • Crushers
  • Pumps
  • Compressors

The appropriate electric motor for a given application depends on the machinery used. The machine may sustain considerable damage from an incorrectly matched motor or stall and fail.
