Single phase motors are also known as Asynchronous Motor or Ringing Motor. The term single-pulse can be used for this type of motor, because the inner ring of the magnet rotor is not pulsating, as in a pulsating rotor. Single phase induction motors use a high current to induce a large magnetic field into a very small coil. The induction loop then generates the electricity through the magnetic field. There are two types of single-pulse motors: Ringing and non-ringing.

Single-pulse Ringing motor works under the principle of induced alternating currents (IAC). IAC's cause the current to alternate between two paths, one in which the induced currents are formed in the rotor and one in which they are released. In a non-ringing stator winding, the electric current flows only in one direction along the stator. The electrical energy is stored in the winding and is not used to power the motor; therefore, there is no reason for a large amount of heating.

Single phase induction motors are also known as synchronous permanent magnet motor (SPM) and generally have one permanent magnet stator and three or more windings. The windings are typically made of copper or lead. To control the speed of the motor, the input voltage is converted into an alternating current (AC) by means of a switching device such as a diode or a series of diodes. The output of the motor is a small amount of mechanical energy that is required to keep the stator and the windings spins at a definite frequency. The input phase of the motor is characterized by a period of high power loss and increased wear on binding.
