1. DC Motor. How it works?
    1. AC motor vs DC motor
      AC (Alternative Current) motor connects directly to a power source where it creates the moment of force required to rotate the motor’s rotor.
      DC (Direct Current) motor, the direct (AC) power source will be connected to a transformer which converts the power to DC. The effect will decrease the amount of power used by a direct current instead of the alternating current. The motor’s rotor will then be rotated by using a system of magnets of opposing polarity where this process requires less electrical energy.
    2. DC motor is more compact & half the size of AC motor.
    3. Advantages of a DC motor:
      • Uses less energy – up to 55% compared AC motor.
      • Quiet operation.
      • More compact and lighter motor.
