Brushless Vs. Brushed Motors

The biggest difference between brushed and brushless motors, unsurprisingly, is the brush. But what does that really mean? The principle behind the internal workings of brushed and brushless motors are otherwise much the same. When motor windings become energized, a temporary magnetic field is created to repel or attract permanent magnets. This magnetic force is converted to shaft rotation, allowing the motor to do work. As the shaft rotates, the electric current is routed to different sets of windings, maintaining electromotive repulsion or attraction, forcing the rotor to continually rotate.
