What is the Principle of an Electric Motor

Nowadays, electric motors can be found in everybody’s life because they convert electric energy to mechanical or kinetic energy. Eclectic motors are available in electric vehicles (EVs), fans, watches, mixers, grinders, washing machines, and many other apparatuses. Hence, knowing the motor principles can help everyone to use motor-based equipment more

ballast resistor

A ballast resistor is a resistor that resistance increases as current flows through it is increases and its resistance reduces as current flows through it drops. As a result, a device that helps to preserve the electrical circuit’s stability. Even if there are variations in the applied voltage or the
