Top 7 Motor Manufacturing Powers in the World
Electric motor is a device that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. It uses the energized coil (that is, the stator winding) to generate a rotating magnetic field and act on the rotor (such as a squirrel cage closed aluminum frame) to form a magnetoelectric rotating torque.
Electric motors are divided into DC motors and AC motors according to the different power sources used. Most of the motors in the power system are AC motors, which can be synchronous or asynchronous motors (the stator magnetic field speed of the motor does not maintain synchronous speed with the rotor rotation speed).
An electric motor mainly consists of a stator and a rotor, and the direction of the force acting on the energized wire in the magnetic field is related to the direction of the current and the direction of the magnetic induction line (magnetic field direction). The working principle of an electric motor is the effect of a magnetic field on the force acting on the current, causing the motor to rotate. The following are the seven major motor manufacturing powers in the world:
