The stator and the rotor are the two main parts of the synchronous motor.
The stator becomes stationary, and it carries the armature winding of the motor.
The armature winding is the main winding because of which the EMF induces in the motor.
The rotator carry the field windings.
What is synchronous motor?
A synchronous electric motor is an AC motor in which, at steady state, the rotation of the shaft is synchronized with the frequency of the supply current; the rotation period is exactly equal to an integral number of AC cycles.
What are synchronous motors used for?
usually, synchronous motors are used for applications where precise and constant speed is required. Low power applications of these motors include positioning machines. These are also applied in robot actuators. Ball mills, clocks, record player turntables also make use of synchronous motors.
What are the two types of synchronous generators?
Based on the armature winding and field winding arrangement, synchronous machines are classified into two types: Rotating Armature type and Rotating Field type.
- In rotating armature type, the armature winding is housed in the rotor.
- In rotating field type synchronous machine, filed winding is wound on the rotor.
