A traction motor is an electric motor used to drive a piece of machinery. Consisting of heavy wire wound inside of the motor's case known as the field windings and wire wound around the motor's inner shaft called the armature, the electric power is transported between the two elements through brushes. The brushes are small, spring-loaded metallic components upon which the armature's exposed shaft rides. Many systems are used in the motor to redirect excess power as well as to use the electricity to reverse the motors and act as brakes.
