Operations of a Variable Speed Motor

A variable speed motor operates by placing an electromagnet in a magnetic field made by a permanent magnet. Constructed from steel or iron with wire wrapped around it going in one direction, the electromagnet turns the drive shaft, which then spins freely along a single axis. For electricity to be supplied to the wires from [...]
