Brushless Ac Motor

A brushless AC motor is also known as an induction motor because the motor rotor is driven by electomagnetic induction rather than by mechanical contact. In a brushless motor, the alternating current is used to create a magnetic flux around the motor stator. This magnetic flux then induces the motor of the rotor unit. The absence of brushes reduces the mechanical friction in the motor an greatly increases the motor efficiency.
