Fig. Diagram of Electric Motor
Electric Motor is a device which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
Principle of Electric Motor
The principle of the electric motor is based on the fact that a current carrying conductor produces a magnetic field around it. A current carrying conductor placed perpendicular to magnetic field experiences a force.
Construction of Electric Motor
(1) Armature coil
It consist of a single loop of an insulated copper wire in the form of a rectangle ABCD.
(2) Strong field magnet
Armature coil is placed between 2 pole pieces of a strong magnet which provide strong magnetic field.
(3) Split ring type commutator
It consist of 2 halves of a metallic ring. The two ends of armature coil are connected to these 2 halves of ring. Commutators reverses the direction of current in armature coil. The inner sides of these halves are insulated and attached to axle.
The external conducting edges touch the two stationary carbon brushes which press against the commutator. These brushes act as contact between commutator and terminal battery. These brushes are connected to a source called battery.
It is connected across the carbon brushes. It supplies current to the armature coil.
Working of Electric Motor
(i) In the side AB of the rectangular coil ABCD, the direction of current is from A to B and in the side CD of the coil, the direction of current is from C to D. The direction of magnetic field is from N pole of the magnet to its S pole.
(ii) Applying Fleming’s Left hand rule to sides AB and CD of the coil, the force on side AB of the coil is in downward direction whereas the force on side CD of the coil is in upward direction. Due to this the side AB of the coil is pushed down and side CD is pushed up. This makes the coil ABCD rotate in the anticlockwise direction.
(iii) While rotating, when the coil reached vertical position, then the brushes will touch the gap between the two commutator rings and current of the coil is cut off. Though the current to the coil is cut off when it is in the exact vertical position, the coil does not stop rotating because it has already gained momentum due to which it goes beyond the vertical position.
(iv) After half rotation, when the coil goes beyond vertical position, the side CD of the coil comes on the left side whereas side AB of the coil comes to the right side, and the two commutator half rings automatically change contact from one brush to the other.
(v) After half rotation of the coil , the commutator half ring X makes contact with brush P whereas the commutator half ring Y makes contact with brush Q. This reverse the direction of current in the coil.
(vi) The reversal of direction of current reverses the direction of force acting on the sides AB and CD of the coil. The side CD of the coil is now on the left side with a downward force on it whereas the side AB is now on the right side with an upward force on it. Due to this the side CD of the coil is pushed down and the side AB of coil is pushed up. This makes the coil rotate anticlockwise by another half rotation.
(vii) The reversing of current in the coil is repeated after every half rotation due to which the coil continue to rotate as long as current from the battery is passed through it.
The Commercial Motor uses
(1) Electromagnet in place of permanent magnet.
(2) A soft iron core on which coil is wound.
Uses of D.C. Motor
It is used in electric cars, rolling mills, electric cranes, lifts, drilling machine, fan, hair dryers, blowers, tape recorder, refrigerators, washing machine, mixers, blenders.
Your class notes site is wonderful
adarsh virat says
yaah really its too much amezing site..
This is a helpful site indeed.
I like this site
What is Couple ?
Mrs Shilpi Nagpal says
In context to electric motor, a couple refers to two parallel forces that are equal in magnitude, opposite in sense and do not share a line of action. A better term for this is force couple or pure moment
Seemant Panwar says
Fantastic i easily understood every thing about motor it also help me in my exams
tajinder singh says
amazing could understand clearly
Aastha Gupta says
it was amazing site……………….
really impresed with class notes , as it makes D.C ‘s explation quiet easy.and language is simple as-well………….

Awesome websites for children that provides free class notes on electric motor class 10
Very Helpful notes on Electric motor for Class 10
govind kumar says
it is really hepfull
Principle is coil keep inside the two magnetic when you apply the batter (current)which experience the force due to current in coil and mg field .
Yeah such an amazing site I have ever viewed. It made my understanding very easier and simpler. Through this site I made my reading easier.
