If either your industrial operations already use synchronous motors or if you are designing a new industrial process that could greatly benefit from the perks of a synchronous motor, probably you have given some thought about the guts of this type of motor.

Now let one of our fellow members of the community D.Ros tell you more about it. Enjoy!

Hi dears! Today D.Ros gives us the next article of his article series about motors. As usual, it is very interesting ; just judge by yourself:

Since electrical motors have been around, the cornerstone of heavy duty industrial operations (as crushers, grinders, mills, hoists, blowers, chippers, mixers, compressors, centrifugal pumps, exhausters, etc.) have been driven with synchronous motors for their high power and most efficient way to convert alternating current into mechanical energy; as for, different to asynchronous (induction) motors, their main source of magnetic field is derived from direct current injection rather than through the air-gap.

Last time, D. Ros published a very interesting article about motors and drives. Today he’s at it again with synchronous motors and guess what? He proposed to publish a series of articles about motors! We thank him dearly.

Synchronous machines are highly regarded in the industry for their unique applications of high mechanical power demand, power system control, and plant power factor correction.

However, the uniqueness of these applications has lead into different regulation techniques oriented to meet their specific requirements.

5 most common starter device types (LV/MV motor starters)

Hi it’s Steven Mill. I think I’ve never written on this topic before, so let me tell you about motor starters…

starter device

A starter, more or less acts as a supervisor of the motor. It controls the power supply, defies switching of overloads, and also takes on the duty of disconnecting the motor from the mains, when deemed necessary.

As we can read about the topic:

“A starter can be defined as a combination electric motor controller, which can start or stop the motor with the help of external switches, protect the motors from getting overloaded, and disconnect them from the mains, in case of a serious power or load fluctuation, by taking help from the integral disconnecting devices.”
