Hey guys. I am a student in mechanical engineering who is very interested in electric motors. I have been trying on my own to learn how they work and tried to come up with ways of improving them or finding new ways of using them. so far...nothing!
Hi Joe,

Why not sign up for a course in energy conversion or electrical machinery in the EE department?

There are plenty of books on the subject. See the library on campus.

The load questions you ask are most often found on the performance characteristic graphs supplied as the specifications with the motor, generator, or alternator. However, these quantities can be calculated if you have the parameters for the machine.
