Rotating Stator?

  1. Jan 16, 2016 #1
    Hello. I just want to know if it is possible to have permanent magnets as Stator in a Rotating Magnetic field morot. However, these Stators rotates to change their polarities in relation with the Rotor. Much like the harmony of Intake/Exhaust valves in an Internal Combustion Engine.

    If it rotates, it's not a stator, which is defined as not rotating.

    I know but i just used the 'term' so readers could see the perspective I am at. Because if I say rotor and then rotor, whats the difference? So I had to use the same term.
