Brushless electric motor

A brushless electric motor is an electric motor driven by an electrical input, which lacks any form of commutator or slip ring. Depending on their design, they can be driven by either alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC).

A brushless DC electric motor contains a synchronous motor and integrated power electronics that operates the motor from a direct current supply.

A "permanent-magnet synchronous motor" (PMSM) or "permanent-magnet motor" (PMM) is a  )
