In an age largely characterized by information and communication technology, which uses more and more feeble currents, electrical power is experiencing a period of excellent health and heading toward a bright future. This success is largely due to electric motors, which are available in different types and powered by dc as well as ac sources operating at either utility or variable frequencies. The versatility and ubiquity of electric motors are so wide that they can be found almost everywhere… 

The Development of ac Rotary Machines [Historical]

After Michael Faraday (1791-1867) produced an electromotive force (EMF) between the axis and edge of a disk kept in rotation and subjected to the axial magnetism of a fixed permanent magnet in 1831,
