Where are DC motors used?
DC motors are used wherever precision and/or speed is required. Another example where DC motors are used is in applications where high power is required.
What are DC motors?
The high speed that a DC motor can reach makes these motors very suitable for grinding machines, saws or fans, for example. In DC motors, electrical energy is converted into mechanical energy. In most cases, these forces are created by magnetic fields in which the rotor generates the drive.
What are the advantages of DC motors?
DC motors are very precise and fast. This is one of the advantages over AC motors. With DC motors, you can also control the speed and start, stop, accelerate or reduce speed faster.
How does a DC motor work?
In DC motors, a conductor is surrounded by a magnet. The conductor itself becomes an electromagnet and rotary movement is generated by the repulsion or attraction of the poles. This rotary movement is maintained by power interruptions and polarity reversal and stopping is prevented. The speed of the rotary movement can also be controlled by this methodology.
