The rotor, which moves, and the stator, which does not, is an electric motor's two mechanical components. A set of magnets and an armature, one of which is attached to the rotor and the other to the stator, form a magnetic circuit, and it also has two electrical components.

The magnets produce a field of magnetic energy that travels through the armature. Electromagnets or permanent magnets are examples of these. In most motors, the armature and the field magnet reside on the rotor, but in some, they are reversed.


The rotor is supported by bearings, which transfer the force of axial and radial loads from the shaft to the motor housing through a low-friction interface. This allows the rotor to turn on its axis.


The moving component that generates the mechanical power is known as the rotor. Conductors that carry currents are typically housed in the rotor, where the stator's magnetic field exerts force to turn the shaft. Alternately, the conductors are held in place by the stator in some rotors by permanent magnets. Super durable magnets offer high proficiency over a bigger working pace and power range.

It can turn because there is an air gap between the rotor and stator. The electrical properties of the motor are significantly affected by the gap's width. It is for the most part made as little as could be expected, as a huge hole debilitates execution. It is the primary reason why motors operate at a low power factor. The charging current increments and the power factor diminish with the air hole, so thin holes are better. On the other hand, in addition to causing noise and losses, gaps that are too small may also cause mechanical issues. The engine shaft reaches out through the course to the beyond the engine, where the heap is applied. Since the powers of the heap are applied past the furthest bearing, the heap is supposed to be overhung.


The stator, which encircles the rotor and typically houses field magnets, are either permanent magnets or electromagnets made of wires wound around a ferromagnetic iron core. These generate a magnetic field that exerts force on the windings and travels through the rotor armature. Laminations thin sheets of metal that are insulated from one another make up the stator core. These covers are made utilizing electrical steel which has a predetermined attractive porousness, hysteresis, and immersion. When a solid core is used, losses caused by induced circulating eddy currents are reduced with the help of laminates. Vacuum-impregnated varnish is typically used to immobilize the wires within the windings of mains-powered AC motors. Gum pressed engines, utilized in profound well submarine siphons, clothes washers, and climate control systems, exemplify the stator in plastic tar to forestall erosion or potentially decrease directed commotion.


A ferromagnetic core and wire windings make up the armature. Electric flow going through the wire makes the attractive field from the field magnet apply a power (Lorentz force) on it, turning the rotor, which conveys the mechanical result. Windings are wires that are laid in curls, normally folded over a covered, delicate, iron, ferromagnetic center to shape attractive shafts when stimulated with current. There are salient-pole and nonsalient-pole types of electric machines. In a striking pole engine the ferromagnetic centers on the rotor and stator have projections called poles confronting one another, with a wire twisting around each pole beneath the pole face, which become north or south poles of the attractive field when current moves through the wire. In a nonsalient-post (or conveyed field or round-rotor) engine, the ferromagnetic center is a smooth chamber, with the windings dispersed equitably in spaces about the boundary. When alternating current is supplied to the windings, poles that continuously rotate in the core form. A concealed post engine has a twisting around part of the shaft that defers the period of the attractive field for that post.


The rotor receives power from a commutator, a rotary electrical switch. It occasionally switches the progression of current in the rotor windings as the shaft pivots. It comprises of a chamber made out of numerous metal contact portions on the armature. The commutator is pressed against by two or more electrical contacts known as "brushes" made of soft, conductive carbon. As the commutator rotates, the brushes make sliding contact with successive segments, supplying current to the rotor. The rotor's windings are linked to the commutator segments. With each half turn, the commutator periodically reverses the rotor windings' current direction, ensuring that the torque applied to the rotor always flows in the same direction. The rotor would stop because the direction of torque on each winding of the rotor would reverse with each half turn without this current reversal. Commutated motors have mostly been replaced by brushless direct current motors, permanent magnet motors, and induction motors due to their inefficiency.
