Brushed DC motor

Brushed DC motor
 

A brushed DC motor is an internally commutated electric motor designed to be run from a direct current power source. Brushed motors were the first commercially important application of electric power to driving mechanical loads, and DC distribution systems were used for more than 100 years to operate motors in commercial and industrial buildings. Brushed DC motors can be varied in speed by changing the operating voltage or the strength of the magnetic field. Depending on the connections of the field to the power supply, the speed and torque characteristics of a brushed motor can be altered to provide steady speed or speed inversely proportional to the mechanical load.

Usage

Brushed motors continue to be used for electrical propulsion, cranes, paper machines and steel rolling mills.

Applications

Since the brushes wear down and require replacement, brushless DC motors using power electronic devices have displaced brushed motors from many applications.
