An eleven (11) lesson library. Train in the components of an AC/DC motor and explain their functions.
AC/DC Motor Theory Library
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.
Identify the components of an AC/DC Motor. Train in the components of an AC/DC motor and explain their functions.
AC/DC MOTOR THEORY
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.
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 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, Three-Phase Motors – Part 1.
