Building An Ac Motor


Recommended Posts

For the holidays I need to build an electric motor, I have decided to do an induction/synchronous motor.

I made four electromagnets, where i covered them with three layers of insulated copper wire, I placed them so there perpindicular to eachother. I then wrapped them in coil, in series. All I have to do is put a magnet in the middle and hope it spins. I currently dont have anything to test it with but could anyone tell me if im on the right track, or whether it would be better to wrap the coil in parallel, where i use two seperate pieces of coil for the two opposite pairs of magnets, and use one end as earth, and the other connected to the power source.

can anyone please tell me if im doing it right or if you have any suggestions please say

Thank You
