A device which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy is called an electrical motor.
The working principle of an electric motor depends on the magnetic and electric field interaction.
There are two types of electric motor and they are:
- AC motor: Converts alternating current into mechanical power. Linear motor, synchronous motor, and induction motor are the three types of AC motor.
- DC motor: Converts direct current into mechanical power. Self-excited motor and separately excited are the two classifications of DC motor.
