An electric motor or Electric Traction Motor is an electrical machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Most electric motors operate through the interaction between the motor’s magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding to generate force in the form of torque applied on the motor’s shaft
Because the controller provides electrical power from the traction battery, the electric traction motors will work, turning the transmission and wheels. Some hybrid electric cars use a type of generator motor that performs the functions of propulsion and regeneration. Generally, the type of electric motor used is the BLDC (brushless DC) motor.
