DC Motors: Basics & Internal Parts

DC Motors: Basics & Internal Parts is part one of the DC Motors two-part training series.

The course familiarizes students with the internal parts of the DC motor, how they fit together, and the applications for these motors. Students learn about several types of DC motors and how they work and examine the field construction of a DC motor, the armature, and commutator.

Course objectives include:

  • Identify and locate the basic parts of a DC motor
  • Describe the effects magnetic fields have on the armature of a motor
  • Define the right-hand rule
  • Describe the effects of force and motion on a motor
  • Explain the physical differences between the various DC motors
  • Select the proper DC motor for a specific task
  • Describe the internal construction of a field coil
  • Locate the poles in a DC motor field
  • Explain the function of an interpole
  • Describe the types of windings used in the armature coil
  • Describe the interaction between coils and other parts of the DC motor
  • Identify the types of armature construction
  • Identify the elements of the commutator segment
  • Describe how connections are made to other parts of the motor
  • List the types of insulation material used in commutators
  • Describe how brushes interact with the commutator.
