What is an AC motor?
As the name suggests, an AC motor is driven by alternating current and it converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. AC motors are made up of two main components: the stationary stator, which is located on the outside with coils carrying AC current and the inside rotor, which is fixed to the output shaft.
