AC Motor

AC Motor
An AC motor, short for Alternating Current motor, is an electrical machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy using the principle of electromagnetic induction. i t operates on the AC power supply and is commonly found in various industrial, commercial, and residential appliances.

Features and benefits:
  • Simplicity
  • Reliable and durable
  • Self-starting

Pumps & Compressors
Machine Tools
Oil & Gas


Q: What are the types of AC motors?

Common types include induction motors, synchronous motors, and various specialized types such as single-phase motors and three-phase motors.

Q: What is the difference between single-phase and three-phase AC motors?

Single-phase motors have a single AC voltage source, while three-phase motors operate on a three-phase AC power supply. Three-phase motors are often more efficient and have higher power ratings.

Q: Can AC motors be used for variable speed applications?

Yes, AC motors can be controlled for variable speed applications using devices such as variable frequency drives (VFDs).

Q: Can AC motors be reversed?

Yes, the direction of rotation of an AC motor can be reversed by swapping the connections of any two phases in a three-phase motor or by using a reversing switch in a single-phase motor.
