What Motor Is Right For You?
The selection of the electric power system is now the biggest unknown. The question I hear from most people now is, “What motor do I use?” One of the biggest confusions for most people selecting an electric motor is, “What is a watt?” The glow guys are used to horsepower and electric power systems are measured in watts. (1 h.p. = 746 watts or about 750 watts)
How Motors Work?
Electric motors are everywhere! In your house, almost every mechanical movement that you see around you is caused by an AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current) electric motor. By understanding how a motor works you can learn a lot about magnets, electromagnets and electricity in general.
