The feature of the cutting process while commutator turning is that cutting has an intermittent nature, since the collector consists of alternating copper and insulating plates.
All are kicking out brushed commutator motors and most have replaced them with permanent magnet (PM) AC brushless motors - today's winner with about 70 percent of the numbers of motors in electric vehicles.
If we assume that the alternating voltage source is present instead of the direct voltage source which is placed before the switching unit, and the voltage of which is equal to the voltage of the direct voltage source during time period when the commutator is in a switched-off position, we will have the equivalent non-switched voltage source.
