    We don't look at the electron as a particle rotating the nucleus instead we say its a standing wave surrounding the nucleus as first described in the Bohr model of the atom.

    and as such doesn't radiate electromagnetic radiation. Later Quantum Mechanics refined it further explaining things that the Bohr model failed at.
