An eleven (11) lesson library. Train in the components of an AC/DC motor and explain their functions.
Prerequisites
None.
Description
This library was designed to provide training for electricians, mechanics, and others that need to learn more about AC and DC motor theory. This library consists of eleven lessons that address various aspects of AC and DC motor theory.
Objectives
Identify the components of an AC/DC Motor. Train in the components of an AC/DC motor and explain their functions.
Content

 Announcements
This is the first lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library. This
lesson identifies the components of an AC motor and explains their
functions. Basic magnetic principles, sine waves, methods of increasing
magnetic flux in a conductor, and how a rotating field is created in an
AC Motor are presented.

 Introduction to AC Components and Motors
The second lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library, this lesson
explains synchronous speed and how to calculate it. The lesson
demonstrates the relationship between phased current and rotor spin and
induction and its effect on a rotor. Slip and how to calculate slip
using its formula are also covered.

This is the third lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library. This
lesson defines and explains the components and functions of various
threephase motors. The lesson also defines torque and explains its role
in motor operation.

 Three Phase MotorsPart1
This is the fourth lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library. This
lesson defines and explains the components and functions of externally
excited motors, starters, and variable speed drives. There is also a
review topic to reinforce the information covered in the lesson,
ThreePhase Motors – Part 1.

 Single Phase Motors
This is the sixth lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library. This
lesson introduces the learner to DC Motors and their basic components.

 Introduction to DCMotors
This is the seventh lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library. The lesson introduces participants to DC motor theory.

 Series Shunt DC Motors
The eighth lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library, this lesson
demonstrates armature reaction, compensation, and induced voltage.

This is the ninth lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library. This
lesson instructs the participant in the design of series wound, shunt
wound, and compound DC motors and how they work.

 Series Shunt DC Motors
This is the tenth lesson in the iKNOW™ AC/DC Motor Theory Library. This
lesson instructs the student in the design of permanent magnet,
universal, and brushless DC motors and how they work.
