# Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction

According to the Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction, emf gets induced in the rotor. As the rotor circuit is closed one so, the current starts flowing in the rotor. This currents called the rotor current. This rotor current produces its own flux called rotor flux. Since this flux is produced due to induction principle so, the motor working on this principle got its name as induction motor. Now there are two fluxes one is main flux and another is called rotor flux. These two fluxes produce the desired torque which is required by the motor to rotate.

In 1831, while pursuing his experiment, Michael Faraday made one of most important discoveries in electromagnetism. Now known as Faraday’s Law of electromagnetic induction, it reveals a fundamental relationship between the voltage and flux in a circuit.
