Why Brushed DC Motors Still Have a Role to Play in Modern Designs

Figure 1. A brushed DC motor in its very simplest form, using a permanent magnet for the stator field, safety pins as the brushes and a wire coil as the armature winding. It draws its power straight from a battery.

A brushed DC motor will start turning when you apply a DC power source to its brushes. These make contact with the commutator (part of the moving rotor) and cause a current to flow through it. The fixed part of the motor – the stator – provides the constant magnetic field that interacts with the current
