Step 3: REPULSION Vs INDUCTION AC MOTORS

Question :  Why not run on the repulsion motor all the time ?

Answer :  Repulsion motors have a set of carbon brushes sliding over
a copper commutator that is rapidly accelerating rotational velocity wearing
copper and brushes..

While both machines have bearings, the Induction motor has low stating torque and
no brushes to wear out, making it the motor of choice for continuous planer operation..
