Learners study animation showing the operation of an AC wound-rotor motor with its external starting resistors. A short quiz completes the activity.
In this animated object, learners study the rotation of the magnetic stator field of an AC motor and how it interacts with the armature to cause rotation. A short quiz completes the activity.
In this animated activity, learners study how the magnetic field of an armature can distort the DC motor's main magnetic field. A brief quiz completes the object.
In this animated object, learners study the drawbacks of a single-loop armature of a DC motor and the advantages of a multi-loop armature.
Learners will understand how the interaction of the armature magnetic field and the rotating stator field cause the rotor of a single-phase AC motor to turn.
