Synchronous Motor

The motor which runs at synchronous speed is known as the synchronous motor. The synchronous speed is the constant speed at which motor generates the electromotive force. The synchronous motor is used for converting the electrical energy into mechanical energy.

Starting Methods for Synchronous Motor

Synchronous motors are not self-starting. Some additional devices should be used to start the motor. Basically, there are two methods for starting synchronous motors: Induction motor starting (Damper winding) Auxiliary motor

Armature Reaction in DC Motors

Armature reaction also occurs in a DC motor just like armature reaction in DC Generator. This is expected because when current flows through the armature conductors of a DC motor,
