One of the fundamental elements of an electrical engineer is knowing about the different types of electric motors. Without electric motors, we would not have power tools, household appliances, or even cars. Those who are looking to enter an online or traditional electrical engineering program, or currently enrolled students, can use this post as a handy reference guide for studying the basics of DC and AC electric motors.
A first look at a circuit diagram may be confusing, but if you can read a subway map, you can read schematics. The purpose is the same: getting from point A to point B. Literally, a circuit is the path that allows electricity to flow. If you know what to look for, it’ll become second nature. While at first you’ll just be reading them, eventually you will start creating your own. This guide will show you a few of the common symbols that you are sure to see in your future electrical engineering career.
