What is an armature

In the field of electrical engineering, an armature is used as a component of electrical machines that carry alternating current (AC). Armature windings are known to conduct alternating current on even DC machine. The commutator action of the armature allows it to periodically reverse the direction of the current. Armatures can be positioned either on the rotor of the electric machine (the part of the machine that rotates) or on the stator of the electric machine (the stationary part of the machine).
