Dc Motor Field Winding Designs

The field windings and armature of the DC motor can be wired in various ways. The motor design is referenced by the method these two components are wired together. In addition, many motors are using permanent magnet fields. Also, many newer motors are designed to be brushless. Series-Wound Motors Most starter motors are series-wound with

Direct-Current Motor Principles

FIGURE. Magnetic lines of force flow from the north pole to the south pole. DC motors use the interaction of magnetic fields to convert the electrical energy into mechanical energy. Magnetic lines of force flow from the north pole to the south pole of a magnet. If a current-carrying conductor is placed within the magnetic

Starting Systems and Motor Designs

The internal combustion engine must be rotated before it will run under its own power. The starting system is a combination of mechanical and electrical parts that work together to start the engine. The starting system is designed to change the electrical energy, which is being stored in the battery, into mechanical energy. To accomplish
