Electric motors are used in many applications and many industries instead of fuel engines because they are cleaner and less expensive to run.
Electric motors are also a good alternative to fuel engines in many cases because they release no exhaust or emission, which solves a health hazard.
When selecting electric motors, take into consideration the size of the space where the electric motors will have to fit, the requirements for power input and motion output, the desired speed of the motion to be produced, the type of current to be used and the overall cost limits.

 PowerPedia:Electric motor - PESWiki
The modern DC motor was invented by accident in 1873, when ZĂ©nobe Gramme connected a spinning dynamo to a second similar unit, driving it as a motor.
Generally, the rotational speed of a DC motor is proportional to the voltage applied to it, and the torque is proportional to the current.
In all BLDC motors, the stator-coils are stationary.

 Electric Motors - Introduction to Electric Motor Service Factors
Increases in electric motor temperature are measured by the resistance method in the temperature rise table.
Electric motors feature a nameplate temperature rise, which is always expressed for the maximum allowable load.
But the second electric motor will have to be larger than the first in order to dissipate the additional heat it generates at 125% load.

 Electric Motors - Sizing and Dimensions
Choose a motor for which the load is 75 to 100% of the motor's rated capacity.
The motor must be able to start the load from dead still, accelerate it to operating speed, and then continue applying enough torque to maintain speed.
Motors in these applications can operate at or near their rated capacities because the temperature rise is controlled.

  Method of regulating an electric motor and corresponding electric motor - Patent 7038420
It is known for such electric motors to be controlled as a function of a temperature measured on the internal combustion engine, preferably in association with regulation of the real speed of the electric motor as measured by means of suitable sensors, such as Hall effect sensors.
In a particular embodiment, the setpoint is a pulse voltage setpoint having a duty ratio representative of a percentage of a nominal speed of rotation of the electric motor, the setpoint being converted to correspond to a mean voltage prior to calculating the divergence between the setpoint and the measured value.
Also preferably, the method includes steps of measuring current at the terminals of the electric motor and of feeding the electric motor in such a manner as to maintain the measured current at a value that is less than or equal to a predetermined current threshold.

  Electric motor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Generally speaking the rotational speed of a DC motor is proportional to the voltage applied to it, and the torque is proportional to the current.
A stepper motor may also be thought of as a cross between a DC electric motor and a solenoid.
A linear motor is essentially an electric motor that has been "unrolled" so that instead of producing a torque (rotation), it produces a linear force along its length by setting up a traveling electromagnetic field.

 Improving Motor Efficiency
Electric motors consume 64 percent of the electricity produced in this country.
Although they are generally efficient, motors are often run at lowered efficiency because the motor size is not matched to the horsepower requirements of the task.
Since motors run most efficiently near their designed power rating, it is good practice to operate between 75 percent and 100 percent of full load rating.

Permanent magnet motors are very efficient, but only in a very narrow rpm band, and quickly lose their efficiency in the varying speeds of normal driving.
The Horsepower ratings for Electric Motors are a little deceiving, Electric Motors have about 3 times the torque than gas motors and the peak horsepower is basically limited only to the controller used.
The motor is wired so that the negative output side of the controller goes into the field winding, the field winding output is shorted to the armature, and the other armature connection is hooked to the positive side of the battery pack.

 electric motor — Infoplease.com
The traditional electric motor consists of a conducting loop that is mounted on a rotatable shaft.
In an alternating current (AC) motor, the current flowing in the loop is synchronized to reverse direction at the moment when the plane of the loop is perpendicular to the magnetic field and there is no magnetic force exerted on the loop.
The speed of AC induction motors is set roughly by the motor construction and the frequency of the current; a mechanical transmission must therefore be used to change speed.

Electric Motor Repair often entails providing mechanical and motor repair services to a broad array of industrial and commercial accounts including printing, pulp and paper, power and manufacturing in general.
Motors need to be rewound for two reasons: because excess heat has damaged the insulation so that electricity passes from winding to winding without going thru them all, or else because the winding has been cut in a place that is not near the end of the coil.

 Electric motor basics
This characteristic is constant for a motor regardless of the voltage level and is known as the torque constant or Kt and expressed as in/oz/amp or mm/N/amp.
However losses due to electrical resistance in the wire, the steel in the motor reacting against changes in magnetic fields and parasitic drag in the moving parts mean a motor is less than 100% efficient.
Also a motor remaining at high temps may fail because the modern adhesives use to construct it suffer heat induced fatigue and the magnets separate from the casing or shaft.

If a motor with a turn to turn fault short stays in service circulating currents may produce hot spots and the ground wall insulation will eventually burn up causing a shut down.
If your company has had an electric motor or generator repaired only to have the machine run hot and burn up after a short operating time, the most likely cause was a damaged stator lamination core.
Water injection temperature controlled burning of electric motor & generator stators alleviate the damage caused if the oven has a thermal runaway, simply put the water injection system keeps the temperature at the preset levels overcoming the potential of lamination core iron damage due to extreme temperatures, in some cases up to 1500 deg.
