This memorandum memorializes a communication between DOE staff and members of the NEMA Motor and Generator Section in connection with this proceeding.  NEMA thanks the DOE for the opportunity to conduct training for DOE staff and its consultants on July 15th, 2013 which illustrated the different types of motors, motor construction theory and motor applications by type.  It is our hope that better understanding of motor types and construction will assist the Department and its consultants with the discharge of their duties.
