why we use dc motor instead of ac motor?..

Answer / e venkat reddy

due to high starting torque and smooth speed control these
motors are preferred in many application but in present
scenario all dc motors are replacing by electrical drives
due to development of power electronics like IGBT etc. the
DC motor requires high maintenance compare to AC motors and
with IGBT driven ac motors we can get smooth speed and
torque control.

Answer / john davidson

With the advancement of AC drive technology AC motors can
do just about anything a DC motor can do. They can develop
full torque at zero RPM, once the holy grail of DC,have a
wider speed range, and amost zero maintenance requirments.
And to top all that from an intial cost stand point AC
motor/drive combinations are much cheaper. As for
industrail application, in the vast majority AC is the
prefered mehtod.
