For what conversion is electric motor used as a device?

An electric motor is an electrical machine that corrects electrical energy into mechanical energy.

Electric motor

An electric motor (or electrical motor) is an electric machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Most electric motors operate through the interaction between the motor’s magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding. Electric motors can be powered by direct current (DC) sources, such as batteries or rectifiers. Or by alternating current (AC) sources, such as inverters, electric generators, or a power grid.

The electric motor is mainly classified into two types. They are the AC motor and the DC motor. The AC motor takes alternating current as an input, whereas the DC motor takes direct current.

  • The AC motor converts the alternating current into mechanical power.
  • A machine that converts the DC electrical power into mechanical power is known as a DC motor.
