The most common device for changing electrical energy into mechanical energy is the electric motor.
Larger synchronous motors require a separate DC source to be connected to the rotor through brushes and slip rings to provide a magnetic field for the rotor.
In a direct current motor the electrical contacts to the rotating ring or commutator are known as the _____ .
Armature or Rotor
An electric motor with a squirrel-cage rotor is termed a squirrel-cage motor.
An object that possesses mechanical energy is able to work. Work is done when a force overcomes a _____ .
The most common and simple industrial motor is the three phase AC induction motor, sometimes known as the _____ motor.
The construction of a DC motor is considerably more complicated and expensive than that of an AC motor, primarily due to the commutator, brushes, and armature windings.
A _____ is a piece of ferromagnetic material that retains its magnetism after it has been magnetized.
The AC motor offers a wide range of speed control. Voltage is applied to a AC motor and as that voltage is increased from zero to some base voltage, the motor's speed increases from zero to a corresponding base speed.
