DC motors are electric motors that are powered by direct current (DC), such as from a battery or DC power supply. Their commutation can be brushed or brushless. The speed of a brushed DC motor can be controlled by changing the voltage alone. By contrast, an AC motor is powered by alternating current (AC) which is defined by both a voltage and a frequency. Consequently, motors that are powered by AC require a change in frequency to change speed, involving more complex and costly speed...
