  1. Ac motor required AC power supply while DC motor required DC power supply. 
  2. AC motor do not have commutator and DC motor have commutator. 
  3. Speed of Ac motor can be varied by varying frequency and speed of DC motor can be varied by varying armature voltage. 
  4. AC motor can be single phase or three phase but DC motor can only be single phase.

Description : What is the difference between an AC and DC generator?

Answer : The generator which generates DC voltage is called DC generator and generator which generates AC voltage is called AC generator (or) Alternator. In DC generator armature is rotated and field winding ... generator. A DC generator can generate low voltages but an AC generator can generate upto 11kv.

Description : What is the difference between synchronous and asynchronous motors?

Answer : The motor which rotates at constant speed is called synchronous motor. And that constant speed is called as synchronous speed.  And the motor which does not rotates at constant speed are called asynchronous motor. Asynchronous motor is also called as Induction motor.

Description : What is the difference between AC and DC drive?

Answer : AC means alternating current It's Frequency is 50hz Dc means direct current ItsI Frequency is 0Hz

Description : Why are DC motors used in trains and not AC motors ?

Answer : The reason is torque. torque is inversely proportional to speed..i.e when th knowe train comes to rest position to motion.. initial speed is zero..so it requires high starting torque for ... current will flow through field and armature coils then maximum torque is available at the intial condition.
