Following are the difference between generator and motor
|It converts mechanical energy into electrical energy.
||It converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
|It is based on the principle of dynamically.
||It is based on the principle that when current-carrying conductors are placed in magnetic field, it experiences forces.
|The direction is given by Fleming’s right-hand rule.
||The direction is given by Fleming’s left-hand rule.
|It is driven by mechanical machine which develops voltage which in turn produces current.
||It is supplied by electric current which develops torque which in turn produces rotation.
|It uses Fleming’s right-hand rule to determine the direction of induced current.
||It uses Fleming’s left-hand rule to determine the direction of force produced.
|Application:- Lighting, power supply, battery charging etc.
||Application:- centrifugal pump, blowers and, fans, lathe machine tools, reciprocating, pump etc.
