What is the difference between Electric Motor and Electric Generator?


Difference between Electric Motor and Electric Generator: 

  • Generator converts mechanical energy to electrical energy, while motor converts mechanical energy to electrical energy. 
  • In a generator, shaft attached to the rotor is driven by a mechanical force and electric current is produced in the armature windings, while the shaft of a motor is driven by the magnetic forces developed between the armature and field; current has to be supplied to the armature winding. 
  • Motors (generally a moving charge in a magnetic field) obey the Fleming`s left hand rule, while the generator obeys Fleming’s left hand rule.
