Both brushless DC (BLDC) and brushless AC (BLAC) motors are permanent magnet, synchronous devices. They both produce torque and speed through the interaction of a rotating magnetic field in the stator and permanent magnets on the rotor. But while they have many similarities, differences in their stator construction produce different back EMF waveforms and result […]
What is a commutator?
The operating principle of a DC motor is based on the interaction between the magnetic field of a rotating armature and the magnetic field of a fixed stator. As the north pole of the armature is attracted to the south pole of the stator (and vice-versa), a force is produced on the armature, causing it […]
