DC Motors: Learn About DC Motors Here > DC Motor converts electric energy into mechanical energy. A DC Motor uses direct current - in other words, the direction of current flows in one direction.

A DC Motor usually consists of: An armature core, an air gap, poles, and a yoke which form the magnetic circuit; an armature winding, a field winding, brushes and a commutator which form the electric circuit; and a frame, end bells, bearings, brush supports and a shaft which provide the mechanical support.
